Well, it depends. If you want the spec to reach Rec. at W3C there are a 
couple of weeks to finish it and get enough of a testsuite together that 
it's clear that we will be done in a month or two. To achieve that I 
would recommend being very focused on ironing out known bugs, filling in 
incomplete text, and writing tests, rather than on adding new features.

If you have given up on that goal then that external forcing function 
doesn't apply, and this could be a good time to add new features.
