My interpretation of your comments is the first set (#1-#4 above) are 
considered FPWD Showstoppers by the CSS WG and the second set of 
comments (#1-#2) were your personal comments (since they are related to 
the API and process) and as such, Not FPWD Showstoppers.

Given this interpretation - and of course, please correct it if it is 
wrong - it appears the only remaining FPWD Showstopper is #2 in the 
first set of comments. Is that correct?

(FYI, before the FPWD is published in /TR/, the HTML reference will use 
a link to the W3C's HTML5 spec.)

-Thanks, AB
