No Change to Status Section

Written by Philip Jägenstedt.

Summary

Leave the status section up to the discretion of the editor and W3C staff.

Rationale

WHATWG's contributions to the development of HTML5 are substantial, to say the least. Acknowledging its existence, briefly explaining its relationship to the W3C and linking to several useful resources hosted by the WHATWG is the least that the W3C could to.

With the WHATWG having dropped the "5" from HTML5, the risk of confusion is lower than ever. More importantly, lacking evidence of actual confusion, acting pre-emptively because there might be confusion is a waste of everyone's time.

Details

No spec change.

Impact

Positive Effects

Attentive readers of the spec will learn something about how the spec is developed and the options they have for giving feedback.

Negative Effects

The WG will have wasted time on this non-issue ISSUE.

Conformance Classes Changes

None

Risks

None
