the working group (WG) will be looking for >1 proof of concept when we
enter what W3C calls "Candidate Recommendation" (CR) review, however the WG
is just about to enter "Last Call" review which typically precedes CR

this will be part of CR, as an example see what we did for SOAP 1.2 CR:

we no longer rely on Query's dm, e.g.
http://www.w3.org/2000/xp/Group/3/06/Attachments/OptimizationMechanism.html,
 you need to make sure you are reading the most up to date versions of our
