My bad. I do have an updated draft that will be hitting github soon (no 
wifi on the 'plane!). Shane and Charles have also done work on the text.

Recall that the goal is for the text to be included in HTML, replacing 
the text that's there. So the next step will be for task force review, 
and after that (depending on the review outcome) a bug report (or pull 
request) against HTML 5.1.

WG notes don't have to be explictly mentioned in charters; nether do 
individual bug reports.

But I don't think we have an explicit plan.
