The HTTP API spec has a normative dependency on the Core Messages spec.
Publishing the HTTP API spec without also publishing the Core Messages
spec would result in the HTTP API spec not having a normative definition
of the messages used in the spec.

Even if the group doesn't end up aligning the messages between the specs
we're creating, we still need to publish Core Messages because the HTTP
API spec depends on it.

We can address your concern by adding an issue marker to the spec before
we publish it (you choose the wording that would work best for you).
