Hi Marcos - given this spec is in the Candidate Recommendation state, 
before a CfC to publish a new LCWD is started, I think it would be 
helpful if you provided a list of the changes you propose and a short 
summary for each change. WDYT?

I don't have a strong opinion on where the list of changes is documented 
but I think you previously included change lists in the spec itself and 
that would be fine here too.
