My preference is to not publish a Candidate Recommendation and make the 
next publication a Proposed Recommendation (the W3C process permits this 
in cases where the group has proven interoperability after LC). If 
anyone has any questions, concerns, opinions, +1's, etc. about this, 
please speak up.

AFAIK, the only open issue before I start a CfC to publish a PR, is the 
comment from Kenny [1]. Matt suggested a non-normative note could be 
added. Matt - please make a proposal (text plus the location of the 
spec) as a reply to [2].

-Thanks, Art
