Lately? You mean version 1.5, approved on 2006-11-21? I don't know if I
would call that "lately". :)

Many of the early specs have rough edges for various reasons (we didn't
have as many implementors back then to comment on this list, we didn't
have as much experience in writing specs, etc.). Probably we need to
review them all and make them more clear, add more examples, etc. But
that's a big job.
