RE: CVE ID syntax down-select complete - Public Feedback to begin
(removed the cve-assign email from the CC - the entire team can follow this list.)
It might be feasible to package up the raw responses we get on a periodic basis, and change the announcement to emphasize that responses would be seen by MITRE as well as Editorial Board members.
However, since some of the people providing feedback would be competitors of Board members, that might actually discourage important participants from sharing honest opinions for fear that their competitors will hear it.

I'm also slightly interested in the raw opinions, but no big deal either

Agree with Kent, but don't feel strongly about it. You might want to
have some talking points in your pocket if the press does pick up the
story, even if CVE doesn't seek out press attention. "Public comment,
ongoing process, board involved, considering various factors like cost
of adoption/conversion, longevity, usability, etc."
