I was under the impression (based on [1] and some posts to secret mailing 
lists) that Larry had filed a formal objection on the 2D Context part of 
what people outside this working group call HTML5. However, I see Larry 
has now posted publicly that this is not the case:

| No part of HTML5 is, or was ever, "blocked" in the W3C HTML Working 
| Group -- not HTML5, not Canvas 2D Graphics, not Microdata, not Video -- 
| not by me, not by Adobe.
| Neither Adobe nor I oppose, are fighting, are trying to stop, slow down, 
| hinder, oppose, or harm HTML5, Canvas 2D Graphics, Microdata, video in 
| HTML, or any of the other significant features in HTML5."

Since I was mistaken about the formal objection, should I prepare the 
drafts for FPWD publication now? What date should I use?
