With this, I am happy to publish this working draft as a WD. However, I 
think it needs the following changes before progressing past WD:

  - How to parse documents that are written using the syntax defined in 
    that document (needed for tools intended to conform to the 
    specification, since otherwise there's no way to know what the tools 
    are supposed to do).

  - The DOM APIs and implementation rules for those APIs, since producers 
    of documents using the features in this specification need those APIs 
    to fully use those features.

  - Definition of the event model and task queue model for 
    implementations, since that will be needed to define the APIs 

  - The Window object, browsing contexts, and its related APIs, since that 
    will be needed to define the APIs mentioned.

As it stands, the document is not appropriate for its intended audience.
