ISSUE-187: Document conformance has to be stable over the time

validity-stability

Document conformance has to be stable over the time

State:
CLOSED
Product:
HTML 5 spec
Raised by:
Julian Reschke
Opened on:
2011-12-04
Description:
On several places conformance of document relies on external registry which is
not versioned -- it can add or remove any value at any time. This means that
for frozen document its validity can change.

Each edition of HTML spec should include snapshot of registries that can
easily change over the time to create more stable grounds for assessing
document conformance.
