Fine for all except WebDatabase.

I notice that its present ED is virtually the same as its FPWD (modulo  
a new section on data sensitivity). There is no movement on any of the  
thorny issues - locking granularity, relational model and SQL dialect.

I am not sure what benefit is to be achieved from republishing  
essentially the same draft as a new WD. It does have the opportunity  
to mislead general public in thinking that progress is being made in  
the spec, when that is not the case.

As Ian says in the IRC log, no one agrees on the WebDatabase spec any  
way so does it help to publish (essentially the same text as) a new WD?
