About http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-xhtml2-20060726/

1. Issues which are  given in the document are not linked to the WG issues management software which is unpractical.

2. Issues are not maintained on W3C Web site. What is the guarantee that the list of discussions and resolutions about each issues will be maintained in the future. A report with all discussions around issues is not available as well on the W3C Web site. 
	- At least a dump should be made for archival purpose on W3C Web site with a documentation on the chosen format for the dump.
	- Consider moving the management of issues to issue tracker or bugzilla on W3C web site as well in the future.

3. It's difficult to know when reviewing  the document if an issue 
	- is already being discussed or not.
	- has been closed with a rationale.
Having the full list of discussions on each issues would help 
	- the WG to know the history on each issues. (if such thing exists, please share it)
	- the reviewer to know if an issue has been already raised.
	- for historical purpose.

Recommendations.
	Until the document is at PR, given the special status of HTML work, 
	1. make a link to the record of each issue 
	2. In each issue, keep the list of all discussions about this issue.
	   Example: http://www.w3.org/2006/webapi/track/issues/28
	3. Record the resolution for this issue, keeping the link in the document.
