The requirements document is publicly available (3 pages long) at:

and we hope to have the first WD out Very Soon Now.  It will be

After WD publication there will be a comment period of a month
at least.  Please try to squeeze in a little bit of time, everyone,
to read the WD make your viewpoints heard.
