Here's the efforts that I am aware of:

http://dev.w3.org/html5/status/new-information-status.html

Note that we DO have tangible progress on issues like 80 and 131, in the 
form of a Change Proposal which is in the process of being revised in 
response to chair feedback, and no NOT have evidence of tangible 
progress on issues like 120 (unrelated to accessibility) and 142.

My guess is that some of these efforts (I'm not suggesting that this 
includes accessibility issues) will eventually become abandoned.

The issues for which I am confident will be seen through to closure 
appear on this page:

http://dev.w3.org/html5/status/issue-status.html

My personal preference (which I have not vetted with my co-chairs) is 
that we link to one or both of these pages (or similar pages) and keep 
them up to date.
