XQuery and XSLT are likely to be requesting Proposed Rec for a buch of
specs (or a CR followed by PR).

It's likely that I18N looked at these specs before we went to CR in
December 2015.

I don't think any of the changes since going to CR would affect I18N's
reviews. The nearest might be that we handled a case where dates/times
were used as keys in a map (a hash data structure) and some of them
could have associated timezones, by prohibiting mixing timezone and
timezoneless keys:

html/Overview.html#func-same-key

But this was a relatively obscure situation and the other changes get
increasingly obscure and detailed.

The Serialization document has had changes to a debugging mode,
"adaptive serialization", and minor changes elsewhere.

We wanted to make sure you had a heads-up that we're planning to ask to
go to PR (or to republish as a CR if that's appropriate, after
reviewing all the changes) and that you may want to review the changes.
Each spec has a change log, and the documents are mostly stable now (I
think XPath and XQuery are most likey to be lagging with some editorial
work and minor fixes).
