It may be helpful to do this iteratively, particularly as this document 
has not been developed using the traditional W3C approach.  In 
particular, it probably makes sense to discuss the following two items 
further because depending on how they get resolved, much work can be saved:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Apr/0001.html
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=478665#c1

Additionally, I've written a blog post outlining an approach to dealing 
with a number of issues which have been raised from outside of this 
working group.  [1] I believe what I described there is largely 
consistent with the approach that Rob has suggested.
