a) It would be good to know that the actual plan to reconcile things is.

b) As far as I understand, until we have an answer to a), "v3" is a 
moving (and not completely documented) target. As such, accepting 
submissions seems to be premature, unless there's a clarification about 
what it would mean for a submitted document becoming broken after a 
future change in "v3".
