My understanding of the W3C Process is that Working Drafts do not  
signal that a spec is nearing stability. They merely signal that the  
spec is not dead yet. A Last Call Working Draft would be signal that  
the spec is nearing stability. That would be the point where I think  
open technical issues should block publication.
