I've reviewed the spec and filed a large number of github issues; I
hope to file the remainder later today.  (I filed 37 already, have 7
more in a text file that I'm currently writing offline to be filed
when I'm back online, and I'm not quite through to the end of the
spec yet.)  I don't think all of them need to block publishing a CR,
but I think a substantial number of them do.

I also think that after the baseline issues I filed are addressed,
the baseline section could use further review, since in some cases I
think I was only filing the particularly major issues.

I'd also note that there are a number of inline issues within the
spec that should probably be addressed before CR.

             And to whom I was like to give offense.
