Dear Chairs,

I mentioned at TPAC 2017 the idea of simplifying the headers of the W3C 
specifications, in order to reduce the clutter at the beginning of each 
document as well as giving more flexibility to the Working Groups to 
manage their versions. Thank you to the individuals already provided 
early feedback of the proposal. Here is the latest update on this front.

The proposal is available at:


Considerations and use cases are listed in the proposal.

Feedback is welcome by the end of February 2018 at

Feel free to forward this message to your editors and your group.

Thank you,
