It is a first public working draft of the recommendation track doc 
"Ontology for Media Object 1.0"
http://www.w3.org/2008/01/media-annotations-wg.html

"first public working draft" in W3C means: the working group does not 
make any commitements about the content, the stability, changes. From 
the "status of this document" section of a FPWD:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-its-20051122/
"Publication as a Working Draft does not imply endorsement by the W3C 
Membership. This is a draft document and may be updated, replaced or 
obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is inappropriate to cite 
this document as other than work in progress."

There is however a period for patent disclosures. From the same draft:
"Per section 4 of the W3C Patent Policy, Working Group participants have 
150 days from the title page date of this document to exclude essential 
claims from the W3C RF licensing requirements with respect to this 
document series. Exclusions are with respect to the exclusion reference 
document, defined by the W3C Patent Policy to be the latest version of a 
document in this series that is published no later than 90 days after 
the title page date of this document."

Regarding your question "is it only for feedback": it depends. Some 
working group tend to produce nearly final specs before publishing a 
FPWD, others produce very early draft material and publish the FPWD 
mainly for getting wide feedback. IMO we are the latter category.
