Something to be aware of, consider, and coordinate is HTML ISSUE-93 to
remove the <details> element from HTML5 [1].

Shelley Powers is writing a change proposal for having <details>
removed from the spec [2].

It would be good to get Shelley's rationale for her proposal and input
on your details element as a replacement for summary attribute
proposal [3] as there could be a problem [4].

I have added this comment to the Wiki discussion page of your proposal
[5]. Wiki talk/discussion pages can be used to add notes and interact
with each other and exchange comments and ideas about the page at hand
[6]. Gregory has left a couple of comments too.

Best Regards,
Laura
