There's no problem with people monitoring a WG list.
There is a problem if the WG list is deliberately dumbed down
to faciliate such monitoring. The purpose of the WG list is to do
technical work, and such work is best accomplished when a high
percentage of those doing the work are implementors.

That's a good sign! The list should be open to anyone, of course,
but most people who aren't interested in doing the work will eventually
get bored and unsubscribe.
