How about publishing a FPWD first? I keep looking through your logs,
and you keep pushing back the publication date because there's still
issues with the spec.

You don't have to solve all issues in the spec to publish FPWD!

You don't even have to *identify* all the issues; it is expected that
a FPWD will have issues. But if you've identified some issues, you
can put
  <p class="issue">There's an issue here that needs to be resolved,
  [some more details on what the issue is]</p>
style .issue { color: maroon; } and then publish.

It would be much more helpful to other WGs and to other people who
want to comment on your spec (and give you more issues to work on!)
if you would publish an official Working Draft. Release early, release
often. I cannot think of a single reason why you should not publish
asap. Your work is not a secret: your draft is already public. But it
is relatively hard to find and other WGs cannot reference it. Please,
just put it up in /TR already and address the issues in the next
working draft. It is very disingenuous of you to keep a public working
draft (in official Working Draft regalia!) and refuse to actually
publish it through the official channels.
