I´m just curious: How far is Theora from a bitstream freeze?

 From TheoraTodo:

"Derf has come up with a number of suggestions for improving the 
flexibility of the bitstream based on his experimental encoder work. 
These will be implemented, if not entirely supported by the reference 
decoder, before alpha 3 is released."

Are those changes supposed to be the last adjustments?

Is the mentioned experimental encoder a tool to document the bitstream 
format and for validation - or is it ment to replace the modified 

By the way: I lately ran some quality comparisons between current Theora 
CVS and XviD with some VQEQ sequences. (after some exams I will perhaps 
do a comparison webpage). I think Theora already delivers quality 
comparable to XviD... so congratulions to the developers!
