Anne has now integrated the CR's exit criteria and text about security 
considerations into the version proposed for CR:


Candidate Recommendation Exit Criteria

To exit the Candidate Recommendation (CR) stage the following criteria 
must have been met:

    1. There will be at least two interoperable implementations passing 
all test cases in the test suite for this specification. An 
implementation is to be available (i.e. for download), shipping (i.e. 
not private), and not experimental (i.e. intended for a wide audience). 
The working group will decide when the test suite is of sufficient 
quality to test interoperability.

    2. A minimum of six months of the CR stage will have elapsed. This 
is to ensure that enough time is given for any remaining major errors to 
be caught. The CR period will be extended if implementations are slow to 

    3. Text, which can be in a separate document, exists that explains 
the security considerations for this specification. This may be done in 
a generic manner as they are most likely applicable to various APIs. The 
working group will decide whether the text is of sufficient quality.

An update to this draft will point to the test suite.

As such, the comment period for this Call for Consensus is extended to 
July 13.

As with all of our CfCs, positive response is preferred and encouraged 
and silence will be assumed to be assent.
