You're right about getting it finished soon. Once that's done it would 
be the appropriate time to produce an updated version. But then I was 
going beyond the scope of the Overview; we weren't asked to comment on 
the main document, so my comment should be held over for later. But I 
think it is true that the reasons people use the Web have changed since 
the document was written.
