I think all three documents need some work before they get marked “final”,
but I definitely support marking these documents as draft reports of the
community group. (I was the one who suggested it to Peter!)

By linking them as draft reports, they will show up in a few places on
w3.org:

   - On the Maps for HTML Community Group page
   <https://www.w3.org/community/maps4html/>
   - On the list of all reports by community groups
   <https://www.w3.org/community/reports/>

This will hopefully get more people looking at the documents, and will help
demonstrate that the group is active.
