It depends on what you want to accomplish.

The purpose of a First Public Working Draft is to seek wider review[1] 
and to start the clock on requiring disclosure of essential patent 
claims[2].

Unless your objections are to either of these two occurring, I'd suggest 
focusing near term on Jeff's suggestions[3], and longer term on Last 
Call[4] as ordinarily that would be when such Formal Objections are 
forwarded on for consideration.

Meanwhile, all active Formal Objections will be recorded here:
