FWIW, he did post to the mailing list and he got an underwhelming response:


When I responded to him on BCT I said "I was about to suggest you hit
the mailing list for some initial comments first— but I see you've
done that. I'll issue a number in a couple days once there has been a
little chance for some discussion.".

Since much discussion didn't materialize I went and gave it a
technical once over, posting to the forum.  In hindsight, I probably
should have also posted my review to the mailing list, which might
have served to restart some additional discussion.
