Actually, I think we've generally agreed that an Implementation Guide is
both necessary and urgent. We've already agreed, I think, to move a number
of the "how to" topics from the original Arch Spec draft into that document.

I have already volunteered to work on that doc as soon as we're done with
the Arch Spec--I think it's existence will be a key to continued adoption of
DITA and the fact that we do have the Adoption TC as a vehicle for
publishing such things at least means it can be an organized effort.
