That's my issue too. It is very hard to keep up with the changes in the specification.  It is changing too often, too quickly. I have reviewed in the past quite my share of w3c specifications.

The specification is like a giant umbrella for many technologies, it makes it even harder for people to review the part which matters for them, be an author or an implementer of a specific library.
