Yes, full agreement here. That's why the thread felt so weird to me,
I think the entire focus is wrong. But I'm starting to realize that
this is apparently the wrong forum to state this ;) (It was the last
W3C list I was still subscribed, too, though. Time to stop whining and
move on, I guess).

I see now, thx, I just re-read the workshop page. Should have known 
better that this stuff is still not considered important enough to
put it on an agenda..

If the XGs can't figure that out on their own, we're pretty lost.
What about interactive tools that answer "find the specs relevant to
me", "who is using this?", "what tools exist for this?", "what are 
the dependencies?", "examples?", "what should I read next?". We'd 
need an annotation tool for the individual specs and spec sections.
But then we'd have to use our own boring technology for what we say
it's made for. Nah.., just had this cool idea of sub-queries in 
property paths, gotta work on that first.
