Thanks for the feedback, and yes, all of Editors should ask for help  
and others should contribute to testing, responding to commment, etc.

Later today, I will start a CfC to publish a LCWD of these five docs.  
In that CfC, the proposed LC review period will be six months unless  
someone commits to completing the LC review earlier, including  
actively editing the spec, responding to comments, etc.
