Yes, unless there's something obviously wrong or confusing in 2.1.
Then we may fix 2.1 and have the correct text in a level 3 or higher
draft.  Implementors are generally expected to be reading the most
updated version of the specs, so once a chunk of 2.1 has been pulled
into a separate module, it's largely irrelevant.

Yes, generally.  That should be forthcoming in the next several months
for Lists, if everything goes as planned.

We haven't generally done so with 2.1.  As I said above, implementors
are expected to be reading the most updated version of the specs.
This can be seen somewhat easily by looking at, and will be even easier once we get the new
Current Work page back up, which lists all the specs by maturity
