Just discussions, or rather, just as long as we don't have a final 
recommendation to put in there.  I don't mind publishing interim versions

are normative, but won't have explicit advice about element construction or 

In a short while, I will supply a candidate section along these lines; if 
folks think we need to break these up rather than keep them in one section, 
at least the content will be available in Word form...
