These are not the same thing at all.  Roy is talking about public discussion,
while you mention public results.  One puts the public into a contributory
position, in front of the power curve as it were, and the other treats
the public strictly as a consumer.

Neither the AG nor the W3C operations are so black and white in process,
but I think the distinction is worth making.  I'm not passing any
sort of judgment on either model.
