Actually, there aren't that many. The total number of differences is a 
small percentage, and parts that actually impact implementations even

No, there isn't really a need for two specs, but I don't believe anyone 
has found a magic bullet to make that happen. We're working on improving 
the situation for everyone, but it takes time.

In the meantime, so long as we don't break implementations, I'm fine.

No. Doing things with the charter just adds more process stuff. The last 
thing this group needs is more process. If you wish to help with the 
two-specs problem, the best thing to do is to help make sure we stay 
just one community.
