The only extra step is that we have do define a separate short name 
and, for the FPWD, we have to get the formal approval from the domain 
lead (ie, Ralph). This isn't a big deal.

Editorially: there is a little bit of overhead in pushing the current 
4.2 into a separate respec document, but that is minimal. The core 
text that the editors are working on right now remains, essentially, 
unchanged; even the examples may remain unchanged, by adding a note in
 the document that all examples are in the annotation domain, but 
there is no formal restriction to do so. Actually, your example could 
be reused (in a simplified form), too.

If needed, I can also take the load of pushing this through, once the 
current text (with all the extras around selectors that you guys are 
working on) are done.

Agreed. But this is not something we have to specify.
