Definitely, a draft would help a lot.

One thing that I must note is that scoping was in fact the biggest unresolved issue with Daniel+Hyatt proposal, and it is promising that you are trying to address that from the start. 

My own opinion has always been that making variables global is the best way to resolve scope issues in a consistent way. It will of course create plenty of surprises when variables are not set at the top... but it is good style to keep variables at the top anyway.

Tab,

It would be far easier to all of us if you could release a document before the discussion. Shaped like our old Variables proposal. A draft.

W/o that, we cannot comment a given section or example and email is a bad kind of repository.

Thanks.
