Done.  It is at:
http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-tcpm-ecnsyn-04

The diffs:

    NOTE TO RFC EDITOR: PLEASE DELETE THIS NOTE UPON PUBLICATION.

    Changes from draft-ietf-tcpm-ecnsyn-03:

    * General editing.  This includes using the terms "initiator"
      and "responder" for the two ends of the TCP connection.
      Feedback from Alfred Hoenes.

    * Added some text to the backwards compatibility discussion,
      now in Appendix B, about the pros and cons of using a TCP
      flag for the TCP initiator to signal that it understands
      ECN-Capable SYN/ACK packets.  The consensus at this time is
      not to use such a flag.  Also added a recommendation that
      TCP implementations include a management interface to turn
      off the use of ECN for SYN/ACK packets.  From email from
      Bob Briscoe.
