One additional point regarding the publication status of this document 
to consider is that it is intended to inform not just IETF efforts in 
this space, but W3C efforts as well. From that inter-SDO collaboration 
perspective, I believe having it clear the higher bar of Standards Track 
is an important signal regarding the level of consensus and review it 
has received.
