Here is what Nick proposed adding:
*This draft does not constitute consensus and does not
claim to indicate any preferred text of the group.*
Reviewers are advised to consult the list of issues
tracked in the Compliance Current product and the wiki
list of change proposals developed by participants in
the Working Group. It may further be augmented by adding
non-normative text that provides more information. The
Working Group is currently prioritizing work on issues
for the companion Tracking Preference Expression document
[link], in the midst of significant changes.

Revisions from the previous Working Draft include some
updated definitions and revised text on security. Reviewers
may review changes from the previous Working Draft [link].I certainly have no objection to adding something else indicating that we are primarily focusing on TPE, though of course the recent definitional changes were for both documents.

Shane M Wiley <wileys@yahoo-inc.com> , 1/17/2014 12:18 AM:


 Would it be acceptable to add a note to the preamble of the TCS to explain that we are not actively working on this document at this time?

The publication of the Working Draft is just to show where we are, progress or no.  We are required to do it regularly, more regularly than we have done.  TCS is not at consensus, but it is stable.  I suspect  that once ISSUE-239 is resolved, we will publish a snapshot of TPE.

I am puzzled about your suggestion. We have been focusing on the TPE. I don't understand how  the TCS represents any consensus whatsoever.. Whynwould that be a meaningful working draft?

 > Following up on this email from Nick last month (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-tracking/2013Dec/0057.html), our process requires us to publish  occasional snapshot working drafts of the specifications we are working on.  I think the TPE is currently in flux while we consider the proposed changes that Roy has put into the Editors' Draft (eliminating the dependencies between the specifications).  However,  the Compliance document (http://www.w3.org/2011/tracking-protection/drafts/tracking-compliance.html) can be published with the updated definitions that  we have agreed upon over the past two months.  No one objected to Nick's proposal, so I'll ask him to proceed to update the status of the drafts (see Nick's email for full details).
