Which tools? :) a list even for us will be good to establish and will 
help us to identify what's needed by W3C and WGs

1. Templates.
We have the ,new tool which is very practical to prototype documents 
and could reduce tremendously the burden of an author or an editor. 
If we design good templates, we can help people to focus on editing 
content and not worry about markup.

2. Templates for spec. Again.
There's already a template when you create a new WD, but imagine you 
have a template that help an author to draft a feature for a spec.

You have a form and you design:
	Element name: [             ]

	Description:  [                       ]
                       [                       ]
	Testable Assertion: [                 ]

	Examples:     [                       ]
                       [                       ]
                       [                       ]

And this markup could generate a kind of "QA standard" markup that an 
editor could add in his Working Draft.

3. Issues Tracking -> Guide for http://www.w3.org/Bugs
4. Planning for organizing different calls and different stages of a 
specification.

Other simple things? Let's come with simple ideas, easily implementable.
