Related notes:

In version 1.11 (html) and 1.12 (xml), I added non-normative text for primary use cases to the API specification.

In the Editorial Notes, I added an open comment as to whether these use cases should be migrated to the "Introduction" section, along with "simple" code snippets.

The WG has an issue on the way it will treat the high level API. As such there is no need to keep this action open. The FPWD will not contain any reference to the FPWD.
Action is closed.
