Yes, the spec is ready for that (major API areas and concepts should be covered).

Publishing an FPWD sounds reasonable.

Hi Ryosuke, Ben, Kenji, All,

I'm looking for feedback about moving the Selection API [ED] to First Public Working Draft (FPWD) ...

A `rule of thumb` I generally use when considering if a spec is ready for a FPWD is if the feature set is mostly complete although there is no expectation all features are fleshed out in detail (IOW, looking for breadth mostly complete but not depth). The breadth question is important because a FPWD is also used as an "attorney snapshot" vis-à-vis the [PP]. Regarding the spec's open [Issues], there is no expectation a FPWD be bug/issue free (in fact, it would be rare if that was the case).

What are your thoughts about publishing a FPWD? Do you consider the latest ED to be feature complete; and if not, what major features are missing?

-Thanks, AB
