No, the language subtag reviewer is empowered to decide whether to 
proceed with a given registration (or to reject the application). 
However, the record to be sent to IANA *must* appear on list at some 
point prior to submission so that comments (major or minor) can be made. 
Michael is empowered to ignore spurious or minor comments. There is no 
requirement to resubmit the record if it is unchanged.

However, if he picks up a minor comment and modifies the record, he 
really needs to provide an opportunity for the list the see the full, 
comprehensive record. This avoids Stephane's original complaint---that 
you have to read many emails of a period of time to figure out what the 
record actually will be.

The fact that the original requester did not submit the specific email isn't that important. What's important is that *any* registration request has a review period on the list. The subtag reviewer then makes an explicit decision regarding the request. If you're changing the form, you are creating a change that might provoke potential objection.
