I don't think it's pointless for the reasons I gave. One of the valuable
aspects of the W3C is the traceability that comes from the archive in TR
space. We have implementations of XHR L1 that, while not 100%, are mostly
conforming deployed with customers.

I am happy to help with whatever work is needed to make this happen. I
haven't reviewed what errata have been added to the CR document in the
editor's draft. If there's nothing significant (and I'd hope there wouldn't
be to a CR document) I think we could just publish the CR document with
appropriate editing as a Note and be done. It's the CR document I'd like
to not leave dangling.
