I think it would be great to update the document. While in the Webapps F2F there were some good ideas also floated on supplemental metadata systems (e.g. as used in WHATWG for HTML5) that don't require editors to do anything, IMO we should also consider tooling that helps editors add in class tags or otherwise structure normative statements for more usability as test assertions. Both approaches have merit I believe.

The editing tools approach could also be supported through an update to ReSpec, as I have earlier discussed with Robin.

It's bit out of date, but I'm happy to update it if anyone is interested.
