Comments on all of WebApps' specs are always welcome, regardless of 
where the spec is in the W3C's Recommendation process.

The group's PubStatus page 
<http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/wiki/PubStatus> enumerates each spec and 
each spec has (or will have): 1) a link to the spec's Bugzilla 
component; 2) a link to the spec's Test suite.

We have a need for test cases for just about every spec. The test 
submission process is described in 
<http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/wiki/Submission>. For WebApps' testing 
related discussions, please use group's public-webapps-testsuite@w3.org 
list.

-Thanks, AB
