Would it be possible that instead of several documents we could have one  
document describing Notifications and one document describing URL  
Notifications, including their respective use cases? That would make it  
easier to get the specification published I think. As now everything is  
intertwined and there is no real agreement yet about URL Notifications.  
The URL Notifications draft specification could obviously build on the  
Notifications specification.

It would be great to have a first WD out shortly.
