Hi All - the CfCs to publish a WD of the "new XHR" [1] and a WG Note of  
the "old XHR" [2] resulted in different opinions expressed. We think it is  
important to provide a clear message (especially for those not closely  
following WebApps' related discussions) that: 1) the group agreed to stop  
working on the old XHR (effectively obsoleting the XHR CR); and 2) the  
group will continue work on the new XHR.

As such, we will move forward this way:

1. Publish a WG Note of XHR in /TR/XMLHttpRequest1/. The Status section of  
the NOTE will use the same style as used in for the Web SQL Database Note  
[3] and include: 1) a warning re the work has stopped; and 2) a link to  
the new XHR spec. The XHR CR, the last version of the spec with a recorded  
agreement on the contents, will be used as the basis of the CR.

2. Publish a new WD of the new XHR spec in /TR/XMLHttpRequest/ and titled  
XMLHttpRequest Level 2.

If the publications can be made "pub ready" by December 12, they will be  
published on December 15; otherwise the publication will be in January.
