Ohhh... that's why.

I'm looking at section 3.1 Normative Specifications

It doesn't look like my concern was addressed, because we have a section
called "normative specifications" in which we say we will do "regular
updates" which means we have adopted a different model from WCAG 2 which
was was released when it was complete (rather than on a time) and had
widespread approval. So it seems like it has been decided that we will ship
on a schedule rather than when the spec is ready. Does that not worry
anyone else? I was hoping we could come to consensus about whether we were
actually going to ship on a set schedule.

Cheers,
David MacDonald
