I propose that we start work on an umbrella document (I'm happy to put  
the skeleton up in CVS if there's consensus) but I want to avoid it  
being on any kind of critical path. It shouldn't be on Rec track (i.e.  
it's a Note) and moving the other documents forward shouldn't depend  
on its maturity.

Furthermore I want to try and keep the strain on editors as low as  
possible given their already substantial workload, so it would be  
appreciated if the people who proposed and supported this approach  
were to further their point through action by contributing text and  
editorial time :)
