Since there's opposition to using the 524 list, and I don't think  
anyone was really strongly in favor of using it, I've dropped the idea  
from the "open issues" section.  And since the only other thing there  
was a note about the lack of caching, the section is now named "notes"  
instead. :)

Otherwise, no complaints with the proposal as is (except for Simo  
wanting a plugin API)?
