No one has yet suggested a spec action based on this draft. Right now  
it's been put forward for discussion, with some open questions. The  
task for the Working Group is to examine the draft, discuss Cynthia's  
open questions, and ideally distill down some concrete points with  
problem statements, preferably in the form of bugs. If you can help  
with that task, it would be much appreciated.

Maciej
