Yes, we know there are many issues like the ones you have likely
found.  I plan on continuing to correct these errors in upstream
github[1] until the spec becomes an official W3C specification.  I
have a 150+ line patch almost ready to push that fixes some of the
issues identified so far.

A github pull request is the prefered method for submitting changes.
Github issues is the prefered method for raising issues.
