Mea culpa, more than anyone else.  But it's a symptom of the W3C's 
#1 problem, lack of resources.  I've been busy helping get XLink done.
CMSMCQ's been busy helping get schema done.  JeanPa's been busy getting
MS Office to do something sensible with XML, a little bird tells me.  It
was tough to lay any of these tasks aside to put in the errata work.

For some reason Francois Yergeau's name doesn't appear anywhere on this,
which is nuts; it probably wouldn't have come out without a massive 
effort on on his part in the collation and organization of the Syntax
WG's efforst.  -Tim
