Yeah, I reviewed RFC8659, and I agree.  All of the changes are clarifications 
and improvements.

The differences are in Section 7: 
https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc8659#section-7. The only significant 
non-editorial change (besides the algorithm) was this:

>   This document clarifies the ABNF grammar for the issue and issuewild
>   tags and resolves some inconsistencies with the document text.  In
>   particular, it specifies that parameters are separated with
>   semicolons.  It also allows hyphens in Property Tags.

In  my opinion, this doesn't require a phase-in period. My goal in drafting 
this document was that it would be a drop-in document that codifies current 
practice and incorporates the errata.

I'll send out a proposed ballot soon.
