Thanks, that's great to hear!

Yeah, spec conventions are hardly a flash of genius... the hard part is 
just getting people to agree what needs to be done, and to get people to 
start using them.  So, I really appreciate your support.

If you have any changes or suggestions from your experience, please do 
bring them back to this list and we can revise the document.
