I still dislike very much the fact a feature can have a value and
be value-less too. I would accept easily a value-less 'color' feature
and a 'bits-per-color-component' feature having always a value.
Same changes for other value-less properties.

 From my editor implementor's perspective, having features that accept
a value AND can be value-less is a problem for content editors. Sorry
to discover that so late, I needed an implementation in an editor to
see it.

With my co-chair hat off and my AC hat on, I don't care about the
spec's status. I want the spec to be good, consistent, implementable
and authorable outside of vi and emacs. If that goal requires to go
back to a lower stage on the REC track, so be it.
