Frederick, others,

We have had some discussions re Issue 1, and here is where we are now:

There was one feature at risk, see


> "The use of the ActivityStreams terms are considered to be at-risk, pending [activitystreams-vocabulary] reaching Candidate Recommendation and, eventually, Recommendation. If this fails, the (few) terms used in the current document will be replaced by terms with a similar names and similar semantics, but in the namespace defined by this document."

The vocabulary in question is now in (2nd)  CR:


The Social Web WG has also passed a resolution recently:

> "We consider the 12 AS2 terms used by WebAnnotations to be stable and will not substantively change their definitions from those in our 06 September 2016 CR. We expect to go to PR in Jan 2017 and see no likely impediments, given our plan to drop any vocabulary terms lacking 2 impls. We currently lack 2 impls of as:startIndex, but assume Anno can provide them."

 (see https://www.w3.org/wiki/Socialwg/2016-12-06-minutes#resolution03)

Based on this resolution, I propose that the the WG simply removes the 'at risk' label and publishes the document unchanged with a reference to the CR version of the activity stream vocabulary. It is expected that the two documents will get into sync by the time of the possible publication of the Recommendations.
