I was very careful not to mention the recommendation status of any of
the documents in the "Roadmap".  I did explicitly say that several
documents were non-normative, and I believe that these statements are
correct.  I do not believe that there is currently any direct
correspondence between normative and rec-track.  (In fact, I remember
that my attempts to tie these together were not accepted by the working
group.)  Further, I am against any attempt to change the Primer, NC&R,
or the QRG to be normative.

I did not explicitly mention the normative status of the Conformance and
Manchester Syntax documents in the "RoadMap".  This is largely a matter
of forgetting to do so.
