Fantasai updated the document following a resolution of the Group
during yesterday's conference call. We also resolved as WG to release
a new WD [1].
That said, a WD is only a WD, ie something we make public while an ED
is only a view of what's in the editing tool of the maintainer of the
document. A WD is still strictly experimental, subject to changes and
even more important something the Working Group releases to the public
as a request for comments.
So no worries here, your comments are logged, read, taken under account,
and you still have all opportunity to comment on the syntax.
