Yeah, that's clear, thank you.

For #2, I'm good with that.

For #1, it looks strange to me. When EPUB WG came to us and wanted to refer our WDs two years ago, didn't we recommend not to do that because WDs could possibly change drastically? Didn't we recommend them to refer at least a dated version, or even have a copy rather than moving target if they have to use WDs? It looks to me that what you're recommending is to do exactly what we asked EPUB WG not to do. Did I miss something here?
