Thanks for the clarification, Chet. Our problem is that there are implementors of the legacy spec who have useful comments to add, even at this early stage. Some we've simply roped into the TC, but some useful feedback will come via the -dev list (and the -comment list once we have released a draft). The line between official TC communications and useful feedback may blur, but any proposals for changes will come via JIRA anyway. We'll try to keep the discussions on virtio- unless the conversation involves others, in which case let's keep both virtio- and virtio-dev- CC'd. Cheers, Rusty.
