That would be great, but for each of these items please indicate why it ought to delay FPWD. It is unavoidable that there will be issues with the draft  if there weren't we'd release as LC :)

I cannot emphasise strongly enough that the default action when a draft is sufficiently banged into shape is to release it. As I said, I can think of two primary issues: feature-completeness (from a patent standpoint) and browser integration at a sufficient level that we can have a useful discussion with implementers about the general shape of the API.

Everything else I can think of is secondary and can be triaged to the next-WD pile. I might be missing something of course, so in the items you post it'd be great if you could triage them between "critical path" and "next WD", and if on the critical path explain why. The same applies to anyone raising issues.
