I am responding one of your comments.

I thought that we agreed to tackle the WP spec and then the PWP spec, but
I did not think that we are going to ignore PWP during the design of WP.
interpretation may well be incorrect.  But I think that finishing WP
considering PWP will lead to the separation of the Web world and the EPUB
