I agree it would be good to get broad review of the proposed FPWD and  
the formal publication will trigger a related note on both w3.org and  
the weekly Public newsletter.

Please note there is certainly a precedence for a WG to not have  
unanimous agreement regarding the entire "substance" of a FPWD.

Regarding a WG Note, that doesn't seem appropriate in this case since  
the WG's plan of record (Charter) is to create a Recommendation for  
this spec.
