Actually, perhaps that means it's right on the mark.  It's
better to have code (such as FOP? ;-) implementing drafts,
and turning up bugs therein, than to wait till any sort of
"Candidate REC" stage to start such work.

Admittedly, tracking a moving target is a hassle, but I've
seen more good come out of such work than otherwise.  Once
organizations start to "freeze" a spec, willingness to fix
it starts to go away, even in the face of substantial bugs
that turn up.  While the drawing board is still out, fixes
can easily be applied.  When it's closed up, that's not so
any longer.
