Hi Ian, All,

Given the information below, I think it would be useful to move this 
spec to a "test-ready" state. That is, publish it as a Last Call Working 
Draft now and if there are known issues, document them in the Status of 
the Document Section. Then, after a fixed review period, if no 
substantial changes are agreed, the spec can be moved to Candidate 
Recommendation and work on a test suite can begin. Naturally, if major 
changes are agreed, the spec will need to return to Working Draft.

Are there any objections to doing the above?
