Any quick markup is good, if you want to use github using its wiki and 
their markdown would be ok. Otherwise we have as a neutral field 
wiki.multimedia.cx and I started already structuring the document there.

If you want it as an open standard in a way or another would be safe to 
send it over ietf (like had been done for opus) and that means editing 
an xmlrfc in a way or another.

Feel free to ping me if something changes.

The end result must be a stand alone document, with all the people 
involved agreeing and possibly kept somewhere as far as possible from an 
implementation IMHO.
