For my part, I don't mind Anne forking my URL spec given that he plans
to put in the effort to improve the document.  I appreciate that he's
licensed his fork in such a way as to let me merge his improvements
into my copy of the spec if I choose.  Does the WebApps Working Group
plan do either of these things?

A) Put in technical effort to improve the specification
B) License the fork in such a way as to let me merge improvements into my copy

I realize that I did not choose a license for my work that imposes
these requirements as a matter of law.
