I don't agree that cost is lower for these reasons -- we would need to 
look at deployed experience and make decisions over any divergent 
points. Even if these are small, easily resolved decisions, they cost us 
time that we do not have right now.

We still have test suites and implementation reports to build, not to 
mention last call comments to respond to.

I think a Note later in our process may be doable, but I can't support a 
Rec track spec.
