The December 1, 2011 draft is available at

This draft adds re-specifications of locale sensitive methods in the ECMAScript Language Specification (localeCompare, toLocaleString, etc.), adds implementation dependent best fit algorithms for locale and date-time format matching, removes ValueError, and clarifies algorithms and prose in numerous places.

The draft reflects roughly the state of discussions after the meeting of the Globalization ad-hoc on November 15, before the TC39 meeting the following day. Changes resulting from feedback from TC39 and on es-discuss@ will be incorporated later.
