I encourage Working Group members to review the split, and we'll  
likely put forward the additional FPWD resolutions in a couple of days.

Some things that struck me as odd and perhaps worth improving:

1) The introduction has no normative content, and at least in the dev.w3.org 
  copy doesn't usefully link to the modules. Perhaps it should be  
combined with either the Core or Vocabulary specs.

2) The core spec defines parts of the vocabulary, including link  
types, and the hidden, accesskey, contenteditable and draggable  
attributes.

3) Cross-module links appear to be broken or no longer links (thus  
losing the cross-reference) in many cases.
