Of course  ;-)

Once you start participating in the development of WML (be it only
contributing bug reports from testing your sites with the current
version of WML) I think you are certainly entitled to make
suggestions. Your comments sounded more like demands and for that I
think you would have to make major contributions to the projects.

You always have the option of sticking with whatever version you have.

So, just extend it and flex it whereever you want.

Not my topic. I have no problem with this concept. But it is Denis who
is doing almost all the work, so it is up to him to decide how he runs
the project.

I just thought I could make a smart comment. Hopefully you understand
what I am trying to say.
