Here's specification does add a different dimension.  However, the section 2 includes also definitions of various vehicle attributes.  For example, the section 2.7.3 Light State of the document cited above overlaps in its scope with the section 6.12 LightStatus Interface [1] of the Vehicle Data.  Both define different types of exterior lighting (e.g., fog, hazard, high beam, etc.), but do this in slightly different ways.  Where the W3C draft only defines 'fog' attribute, Here's document defines 'FOGLAMP_FRONT' and 'FOGLAMP_REAR'.
