Yes.  I'd much rather have a release with some bugs than let 0.6 stagnate
for more months.

The only bug I see as critical (besides copyless) is FOR-229 (SVG->PNG).
I'd like to fix the aggregate html/pdf pages but honestly I doubt I'll be
able to do it soon.

Is this in line with our plan for xhtml2 and namespaces?  I think using
this extension in the 'xdocs' dir will confuse people.  Especially since
the [i]html file has to be valid html (correct me if I'm wrong here) and
lots of html in the world is invalid.

Sounds good.
