If that's the requirement from the Team to publish as TR, then I object to
publishing as a TR until the requirements are fixed.  If and when the
publishing rules are fixed then we can consider proceeding again.

The spec text as currently exists is actively harmful since it forks the
living standard without even having a reference to it.
