Why don't you go with option 2. Option 1 has some risk.

I think we should consider that the 1.1 UAIG you create may be 
short-lived. I think it's likely we will soon move the sources to 
another location, and also reasonably likely that we will sub-divide the 
guidance differently than we did for 1.0. But if you want to do a 
1.0-like 1.1 UAIG in PF sources folder for now to hold content until we 
do that, it should be ok.

You will need to update your build to create the editors draft. It may 
be as simple, if your build.properties is up to date from CVS, to do the 
following:

Uncomment the lines at the bottom that have ARIA 1.1 stuff.

Add the following lines after that:

     <implementation.file description="Source for the ARIA 
spec">../src/aria-implementation1.1.html</implementation.file>
<shortname.implementation>wai-aria-implementation-1.1</shortname.implementation>
<editorsdraft.implementation>../aria-implementation-1.1</editorsdraft.implementation>
