yes please. It would save us having to waste time searching mailing
lists, bug reports, etc. for an authorative source to the issue. Just
a sentence or two, nothing facy... Enough to get started.

Nope; though when I read that part of the spec and was left feeling
totally confused I should have said something. Also, It's hard to
track all the work (and related issues) that take place outside the
WG. Adding red block to specs is a big help; I know you already do
that in most specs.
