Thank you!

I gather this task of splitting the spec into chunks has been
on Ian's todo list for a while, at relatively low priority,
so thanks for moving it forward.

Where are the scripts? Can we have a pointer? If you don't
have a place to host them, feel free to send them as
an attachment to www-archive@w3.org and give us a pointer
to the resulting archived message.

It will probably make life a little easier if you clearly
license derivative works using the W3C software license.

Also, please make a note on it somewhere that it's a copy produced
by you and not the original.
