Hi, Anne-

There are still still some outstanding issues, which we intend to 
address in LC; many of them are marked up specifically to solicit wider 
review and comments, which is generally more forthcoming during LC.  The 
goal is to collect these comments so we are ready to discuss them during 
TPAC.  We expect we will have to have another LC.

So, are these intended as LC comments (which I'm happy to address), or 
as an argument against going to LC?

Replies inline...

Yes, this is by design.  We believe the spec is feature complete, but we 
know there are outstanding issues we want feedback on.

Sorry, I see I started a reply there, but never sent it (sigh); I will 
send it now.  I think that issue needs more discussion, but I'm happy to 
change it during LC if that's the group consensus.

Removed XHTML (an artifact from an earlier draft), updated the other

Yes, we included 'mousewheel' as recently as 7 months ago, but I removed 
it based on implementer feedback.  I've now removed the stray reference 
to it in the "Changes" section.

The only other place it's mentioned is in the 'wheel' event as an 
informative comparison.

Thanks.  Please let us know if you object to us going to LC, given our 
plan of record.

Monday, for the next week and a half, and will probably not be very
