If Rob wanted to submit this draft to the Working Group, we would give it due consideration. If this draft was accepted as a W3C draft, but Rob wanted to still mantain a separate draft that had some extra material, we would probably be inclined to let bugs on that extra material go in bugzilla too.

Currently, this particular document has no relation to any W3C draft, so it doesn't seem particularly useful to track its issues in W3C space.
