RE: [css-ruby] Proposal to publish new WD

Deciding what to do about HTML5 is certainly one of the most urgent things to address as we go forward with the spec.  With this publication I simply want to produce a WD that will provide a starting point for those and other discussions. I also keep coming across people who don't realise that there is an editor's copy of the spec, and are working from the CR, not realising that there's more work to be done, and so I think that moving it officially out of CR is a good idea too.
