Three things:

 1. An end to open issues. We've gotten a lot of implementation feedback
    since the last CR draft publication, and we're slowly going through
    those issues and updating the spec.

 2. More tests. We are slowly working on making the test suite more
    comprehensive, but we're a long way from there yet.

 3. Two compliant implementations.
