I'm personally disappointed in the format of the online consultation 
so far. Discussion forums allow people to have a say, which is 
necessary but not sufficient for policy consultation. In fact, it's 
very far from being sufficient. Maybe it was all we had available for 
discussion forums a few years ago, but Uservoice (or the similar but 
FLOSS IdeaTorrent) took us beyond that format to something much more 
consultative and productive.

However, the discussion forum serves a purpose, and I'm glad they're 
at least doing that.

My 2c.
