Ok. I reworked the relevant parts a bit, nuked the "successful" DOM 
attribute, added a "willConsiderForSubmission" attribute, and tried to fix 
up all the various references in the document to make sense in this new 
world.

Please let me know if I missed anything. It's quite possible that this 
broke stuff, so I encourage people to proof-read all the changes 
carefully, and to let me know if I messed anything up. (In particular, 
does anything now talk about things that make no sense any more? e.g. 
paragraphs in other parts of the spec that "explained" things?)

I considered doing this as a two-step definition (defining the "will be 
considered for submission" concept and the "willConsiderForSubmission" DOm 
attribute separately) but for now I just made the algorithms refer to the 
DOM attribute, so there's only one definition. It looks uglier when you're 
reading it but it was easier to do for now.
