Again, if someone wants to volunteer to do it, that would be grand. To
be clear, W3C typically doesn't put staff resources to this unless the
Working Group is unable to make their own validator until CR and the
spec is stable. I do agree with James though that early start with the
unstable spec would be grand.

Hopefully we'll see implementation number 2 done over IndieWeb camp in
Cambrige this week!
