Dear all,

Some further explanations: the status section of this document reads: 
"The group does not expect this document to become a W3C 
Recommendation." ... so I assume it aims to be a W3C Note.

I have argued on IRC that you can safely continue to improve the 
document, and publish a new WD early December as the group seems to have 
planned, and then let sleep this document. There is no rush to have a 
Note now, since it has the risk that the final REC will not exactly 
match the UC & Req documents (some requirements might be missing, some 
others might be out of scope for this REC, etc.).
I have seen various groups (SKOS, OWL) that have published the UC & Req 
doc as a note the same day or just before the final REQ, though the 
document wasn't changed for a long time ...

s/RFC/REQ ... W3C produces RECOMMENDATION and not RFC.
Cheers.
