This is an editorial issue, and Anne is the editor. It should be his 
perogative to name the spec he's put so much work into.  Editing specs 
is hard work; let's not create needless headaches for the editors. 
Everyone has had a chance to make their suggestions, now let's just let 
Anne publish his spec under whatever name he chooses. Its just a name!
