Technical discussions (for example, how should the description of the 
<cite> element be changed?) are welcome on public-html.

Process discussions (for example, how can the HTML WG and WHATWG 
coordinate better) are welcome on public-html-admin.

Meanwhile, I've cloned the following bugs:

https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=23008 =>
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=23313

https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=23175 =>
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=23314

https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=22996 =>
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=23315

Two possible outcomes here.  Most likely, the specs are evolving at a 
different rates.  Less likely, but does occur, the HTML WG and WHATWG 
come to different conclusions; these cases generally don't affect 
browser behavior.

I will state that the HTML WG editors aggressively "cherry pick" changes 
from the WHATWG specification.
