Each spec is blocked only by issues that apply to that spec.

In the case of specs that have not yet been published as FPWD, it's  
not totally clear how to apply the bug process and the escalation  
process. My own inclination is that if an editor of a pre-FPWD  
document is willing to follow the bug process, then we should also let  
people raise issues, but the Chairs will probably not advance these  
issues through the formal process so long as the underlying document  
remains unpublished. However, I have not checked this thinking with my  
fellow co-Chairs, so take this as only a preliminary opinion.

Maciej
