XPointer is currently in last call working draft, but from gossip I 
hear that at least two more major drafts are expected before the 
syntax is nailed down. (The latest is that all unqualified scheme 
names will be reserved for the W3C.) Given this, it seems hard to 
believe that XPointer will make final recommendation by December 31. 
If they follow the advertised procedure (which not all groups do) I'd 
be surprised to see a candidate recommendation by the end of the year.
