I think so, yes - though I may not have Anolis set up on any computer I'm carrying right now, so only if somebody else can run Anolis for me.. (I'm back home in one month or so, so I could presumably get the draft pubready all by myself then. I guess I could also add the cross-references manually for such a small spec..).

I'll look at this a bit, but I don't think the differences between a v.1 and v.2 would make much sense from an editing point of view. I'd be more inclined to call the spec "feature complete" at some point even though it may have to wait a few years for implementations to catch up before being officially blessed..
