Writing the spec is one step.

For a spec to be treated as "applicable" by authors and implementors, authors and implementors need to buy into the claim that the spec is applicable, which is something no WG can just go and decree.

Evidently, authors and implementors are buying into e.g. SVG 1.1 being applicable but not so much into e.g. XForms being applicable.
