Yes, you claimed that you didn't need any review because you were a
delegate on IRC. You went on to ask for comments on IRC anyway, and you
might well have done so on the lists anyway, but that's not enough:
getting review from other developers is a requirement for acting in
the name of the project, whether that be in documenting the project's
technical policies or in any other way.

           years ago? (file a bug marked wishlist with the changes you want, get 
           a second on the -policy list, answer any comments, etc)

a justification to not talk to other people; even if that's happening
