Re: Call for Consensus (CfC): Publish FPWD of "Region Capture"

I object to publishing a Region Capture FPWD in the present form, due to
the same issues Youenn mentioned.

My objection is mild and could have been avoided by getting the document in
shape ahead of CfC. The process [1] states:

*"For all Working Drafts a Working Group:*

   - *should** document outstanding issues, and parts of the document on
   which the Working Group does not have consensus, and *
   - *may** request publication of a Working Draft even if its content is
   considered unstable and does not meet all Working Group requirements."*

Assuming there are no more objections, I propose we spend the time between
now and Thursday's editor's call to get *"ready for PR"* PRs merged,
document outstanding *"API shape issues"* disagreements as Notes in the
document, and then proceed with FPWD.
