> This draft has essentially no new technical content relative to rev 
> 17.  However, the document has been completely restructured and the 
> rev17 content has redistributed roughly like this:
>
> Sections 6-9 define the execution environment within which ECMAScript 
> programs operate.
> In previous editions, this was sections 8, 9,most of 10
>
> Sections 10-16 define the actual ECMAScript programming language 
> includings its syntactic encoding and the execution semantics of all 
> language features.
> In previous editions this was sections 6,7,11-14,16, and parts of 10.
>
> Sections 17-26 define the ECMAScript standard library. It includes the 
> definitions of all of the standard objects that are available for use 
> by ECMAScript programs as the execute.
> In previous editions this was section 15. In the new organization all 
> the property definitions for each object are now defined in 
> alphabetical order. The built-ins are now groups into logical buckets 
> rather than one giant chapter.  The naming of sections 17-26 isn't 
> necessarily final nor is the specific groupings.  Feed back on this 
> will be appreciated.
>
> This is the reorganization that was originally discussed in:
