I  agree with the above in terms of implementation details of implemented
features.

In terms author conformance requirements and advice the W3C spec should
provide what is agreed as the best text by the HTML WG, regardless of what
is in the WHATWG spec.

In terms of new features the HTML 5.1 specification should reflect
decisions made in the HTML WG. Just as the WHATWG spec reflects the
decisions reached via the WHATWG process.

I think that having CFCs for addition of new features to 5.1 would be not
be an undue process burden and would provide the opportunity for initial
review.
