What do you mean by "stable"? If we find something wrong with a REC, we 
still need to change it, since otherwise browsers are going to implement 
things that are wrong... (e.g. anyone implementing HTML4 now is going to 
be in a world of trouble because HTML4 has all kinds of mistakes in it, 
despite being a REC -- HTML4 is not "stable" at all.)
