As reported in a previous email, the MINDSWAP group has implemented a 
complete species validator that passes all tests.  However, we were 
not able to work out the details of the so-called "B1,B2" feature 
just from the WG documents (and the we here includes me, Bijan and a 
programmer) -- however, Sean B's document [1] gave us the missing 
information we needed.  I would therefore like to suggest that we 
find a way to include some or all of Sean's in our recommendation 
track documents somewhere or, if we decide we want to include 
something like this whole document, consider making it available and 
citable in our documents.
  One possibility is that if Sean is willing to "finish" this, we 
could release it as a Working Group Note (like we did with the XML 
syntax) -- I think this would be a very valuable document and would 
make me a lot more sanguine if we go to PR without dropping the 
structure sharing stuff (to put it another way - with Sean's document 
available, I find B1/B2 to be implementable - without it, I question 
whether we actually provide enough information for non-WG members to 
implement it)
