I like this organization, but I think it's confusing for HTML.next to be a separate "product" rather than component. I would suggest using something like:

HTML WG/HTML.next
HTML WG/HTML future
HTML WG/HTML future version

I like the "future" naming a bit better because "HTML.next" is ambiguous (does it mean 5.1, 5.2, or anything post-5.1?) while "future" more clearly means "later than any otherwise existing version. It's also easier to apply the pattern to our other specs if they turn out to need a "future" component.

Regards,
Maciej
