I was surprised too; I don't think, though, that the interest was
low in itself, so much as that those attending were even more
interested in other topics that arose.

Don't forget that the WG has in fact published quite a number of
errata, all integrated into 1.0 Second Edition.  It's true that
for the last year or so we have focused more on 1.1 than on
errata and the test suite; the input from the workshop provides
an argument for changing that emphasis a bit.

On the other hand, there are some errors in 1.0 which cannot be
fixed by errata; until 1.1 is done, those errors won't be fixed.
