I applied the editorial changes from LeeF and SimonR and decisions from 
subsequent telecons.

As far as I can see, the ones removed were the ones we had made decisions on 
in the last two telecons.  I CVS-logged mine - Eric can confirm his.  The 
original list in the doc were, IIRC, the ones we were asking for feedback on.

We link to the issues which seems most helpful as it's live.  Will you have 
time to update the issues page in time for publication?  [[I can do the CVS 
commit if you're still having CVS problems - I'll put your name in the log 
message :-)]]

There were statements about what the decision was so I dug out the wording 
on-record.  It does not say "Working Draft" - that seems to be a cause of 
confusion.

Earlier proposals did say WD in the telecon; there was discussion with 
pros-and-cons of not being in CR.  The wording the WG made a decision on did 
not; that might have affected some people's decision.

That seems to leave it as, what?, chair's decision?  Whoever goes in the SOTD?

We didn't get to that part of the agenda this week but no big deal. 
Personally, I don't think it will wildly affect the length of time we take - 
it might add a short round to get both a LC and a CR in (if both are required, 
and I don't know what any minimums are.  Don't have a link to the process 
document in my FireFox bookmarks).  But in what time it takes, we would be 
working on drafting the implementations report and test suite deliverables.
