Markus, all this is because you guys are maximalists... The document would be published as a FPWD; interoperable implementations and such are only required later in the process, although it is great if we already have it. Anyway, this seems to be moot, Manu is proposing to put both documents into the WG publication bin.

As far as I am concerned, that works, too.
