There are three TODOs that stop the release.  Here is a translation
of the part of the BUGS.ja file that is only in the CVS trunk:

1. A url containing non-ASCII characters should be encoded just
   before sending it to a server.

2. Map many faces to various type of forms.  It is mainly for
   blind users who use emacspeak, which speaks with different
   voice for different face.

3. Install xml.el properly for systems in which it is not

As far as I can tell, 1. is trivial and 3. seems to be no longer
necessary nowadays.  And 2. is only a matter of time to do that.
If anything, the main problem will probably be that the developers
(especially the boss ;-) all have no time.
