I think we've identified two informative appendixes: a general "what's new
between 1.1 and 1.2" and a "migration guide" appendix, both of which I think
I explicitly or implicitly volunteered for, but I will definitely create
initial drafts this week.

The issue with maintaining existing specializations is that, depending on
whether or not the specialization specializes elements within taskbody, the
specialization architect may need to either refine content models to impose
constraints no longer imposed by the base task content models or define an
appropriate constraint module to get the desired level of constraints.
