Read the status section ;-)  "The Working Group expects this Working 
Draft to become a Working Group Note."  What made you think it was a

Most of the ideas recommended in the WG were picked up and implemented 
by HTML and CSS WGs.  We have a plan to finalise and publish this

what was actually implemented).
