Are they written, or final-with-implementations?

If they are not final-with-implementations, then there may well be
feedback and editing changes that Nikunj is offering to deal with.

If they are final-with-implementations, and can't really be changed, then
it makes sense to split them out and publish them, so people won't
waste time suggesting implausible changes.  That will shrink the rest
of the spec to a more reviewable size, and it will get these portions
out there for actual use.  The guidelines say not to rely on features in
this spec, because they could change ... but if they are set in stone,
then application authors really could start relying on them.
