I have done some formatting, cross-linking and general house-keeping  
work on both wiki pages which I hope has not offended anyone in doing  
so. I have also added some proposals to the talk page of the 'no' page  
about how to manage the process.

Personally I recommend that there should be a place for a 'rebuttal'  
by the LWG to the comments in the 'no' section - the LWG are, after  
all, the people who have spent a lot of time researching this and  
should at least be able to put their position clearly and then people  
can decide. I certainly feels wrong to allow statements to stand on  
the 'no' page without challenge if they considered to be incorrect by  
others - that would seem to be very unhelpful.

I have also suggested that the 'disputed' tag is removed from the page  
as I am sure not all the statements are disputed.
