I agree WDs should be published if the ED has had what I'll call 
"relatively substantial" changes (since its previous publication in 
/TR/). However, I generally don't support publishing new WDs if changes 
are only non-substantive.

I don't closely monitor the progress of all of WebApps' specs (~40 if 
widget specs are included). My expectation is that group members will 
contribute to their priority specs and if/when someone (and not just 
Editors) thinks a new WD should be published, they should propose so on 
this list. At the same time, we must also acknowledge our Editors have 
other priorities besides editing thus non-Editors that want a new WD 
published should be willing to help out if some minor editorial work is 
needed (e.g. updating the Status of the Document section).
