To summarize the way I look at it (and thereby counter-check my
understanding): basically the plan puts a feature-freeze in place such
that all open issues that haven't been resolved yet are regarded as
"at risk features" since they don't meet the implementation
requirement and are thus pushed into extension specifications, that
may make it if implementation experience can be brought forward before
REC, but otherwise will go into HTML.next.

Is that a correct (while simplified) understanding?
