So would I.

The concept behind the CVA specification isn't changing, only the 
syntax.  Many are already using CVA files and publishing the 
*results* of having used CVA files, without publishing the CVA files 
themselves (as is happening in UBL:  the end result XSLT validation 
stylesheet is included in the UBL package, while the CVA files are not).

Some valuable feedback has been submitted by committee members, so 
the syntax is getting closer to being finalized.  A lot of prose 
rewriting is also underway.

You may wish to prototype with what is currently available for CVA, 
since the prototype outputs are functional.  The prototype inputs 
will be changed when the syntax is finalized.

I hope this helps.
