I guess that what threw me initially was the specStatus name FPWD-NOTE, 
which I think should be just FP-NOTE or some such - since a NOTE that is 
published straight away isn't a WD.  I read it as FPWD intended to 
eventually become a NOTE. Wrong!

It would be helpful to add a note (small n) to 
to clarify this. It currently says (my emphasis):

"Some of the header notably depends on whether the specification is on 
"Rec-track", *which is the case if* the specStatus is one of: "FPWD", 
"WD", "LC", "CR", "PR", "PER", or "REC"."

which gives the impression that FPWD what you pick for docs intended for 
the Rec track, and doesn't hint to you that you can actually have a FPWD 
but still set noRecTrack to true.  Presumably that same applies to WD, 
if you take a few iterations before NOTE publication.
