Well, it is IMHO a very good thing. But I just regret to be informed
so late ! Why does the information come only now to the CSS+FP WG ???

We (EDF) have built in Java a complete STTS parser - and STTS reuse
the CSS grammar - and could have given some interesting ideas and
clues. Our software could even have been a proof of concept for SAC.

I'll send comments on the API itself later on.
