RE: [css3-images] ED -> WD? and moving forward

(1) What's the status on pushing a new WD (from revision 1.166)?
(2) Is there a tracking system somewhere for documenting the open issues?  For those of us that would like to move forward with un-prefixing gradients / CR, that would be very useful tool for focusing our efforts and discussion.

For (2) I know of the following topics but none of them seem worthy of holding up LC, IMO:
(a) [Brad] proposal to wholesale replace the second parameter of radial-gradient
(b) [Shane] color stop fixing rule ordering
(c) [Alan] concerns with interpolation of new corner-to-corner vs. old corner-to-corner
(d) [Alan] discussion about pre-multiplied (and "post-multiplied"), but I'm not clear on the proposal or the issue with the spec

In short (more in-depth analysis in previous mails), my opinions on those 4 topics are:
(a) Strongly recommend against the proposal.  What we currently have is more powerful and time tested.  
(b) Prefer current behavior.  Also "change the behavior of a property because one transition implementation doesn't like it" is a bad precedent.
(c) Prefer current ED to Feb WD.   I think the concerns have been addressed in significant depth.
(d) Spec is fine.

Also usually we have a property list table at the end of the document that contains a list of all the properties within the document it would be nice if this new format had that table in it as well.

All done, though the Property Index is broken for some reason.
