Great to hear, but just note that the Java impl hasn't been updated in a
while and I likely won't get back to that one for some time. The javascript
impl is more up to date.

We have two varying implementations in work at the moment. One we've
implementing on our own and then one testing out the Java reference
implementation James wrote.

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!
