That is somewhat unfortunate as that will most likely take more time than  
we have. You realize nothing is endorsed if we publish and that a First  
Public Working Draft is much different from a Last Call Working Draft?  
I.e. the drafts will most certainly change in details and not all the  
drafts will have to advance at the same rate.

We technically do not need consensus for publication, but I am not sure if  
I want to make use of that ability.

As for tracking issues. We could use Bugzilla I suppose, but I would  
prefer just using the mailing list. If people feel things are falling  
between the cracks we should probably start doing this more formally.

I will ask the W3C Team to comment on this.

As a general note, if features end up not being implemented they will have  
to be dropped from the specification. We cannot advance a specification of  
which the features are not implemented or are only implemented in one
