CSSWG conducts its technical work in the public. Both our official and 
unofficial drafts are public, and the discussions leading to many of the 
proposals (though not all) and certainly the discussions following up on such 
proposals are also public. You yourself have participated in the CSSWG, I'm 
not sure why you consider that "spec progress is inconceivable without work 
first being done internally".

I think the biggest problem here is that there is no public draft that you can 
all work together on. All you have is Peter's work on the MSOT spec. If you 
had a public working draft of OFF, it would allow others to review and draft 
text and have a shared understanding of the current state of the AHG's 
proposed updates to the OFF specification.

In the absence of such a shared draft, the best this community can do is work 
off Peter's MSOT draft. I don't think this is an ideal solution, but until 
there is a public working draft of OFF, it is the best one you have.
