If we want to publish something at all, I think this is the most 
reasonable option, frankly.  I have no strong opinions on whether this 
is done REC-track or as a Note, I think, but I think such a document 
would in fact be useful to have if it doesn't exist yet.

I think this requires more pretending thatn I'm comfortable with for 
Fetch.  ;)

There doesn't seem to be much point to this from my point of view, since 
all the interesting bits are in Fetch.
