This looks like a clear improvement over the existing writeup.  I'd
suggest that not block on making it better, and merge what we have.
Improvements as discussed elsewhere in the thread would rock, but IMO
this is already delivering enough benefit that I'd say "let's go for

Possible suggestion: call it spec version 1.1, and have it mention its
relationship to the previous version of the spec.
