Is there not a definition of origin somewhere in something other than  
a Working Draft? It might make more sense to reference a  
Recommendation that defines origin if one exists, rather than a spec  
which might change in the future (even though I'm guessing the  
definition of origin is unlikely to change).

I'm fine with being in the acknowledgements section.
