I read through the your edited copy, trying to find your suggestions.

Most of the substantive (and some editorial) suggestions/changes I found I
accepted and have made the respective edits to the draft.

There were too many small/incompatible markup edits for me to take them all.
For example, for the moment I have ignored all the additional <abbr> markup.

For future reference, this is a very poor way to provide feedback on a W3C
draft, as I'm sure it was non-trivial to write in this fashion (as edits to
the document), and it is certainly non-trivial for the editors to attempt to
find your suggestions and evaluate them, especially when many of them are
duplicates of what was already reported, and have already been addressed by
in progress editing.

Regardless, thanks again for all your suggestions - the specification has
certainly benefited from your feedback.
