On a practical note, wouldn't we end up with license problems here? The
document used to generate the HTML5 specification uses a different license than
the W3C document license.

If the editor is forced to take changes to the document then either

A) Those changes must be available under the same license as the document used
to
   generate the HTML5 specification.
B) The specification would have to be forked.

Would we be fine with requiring A from people supplying diffs? Despite the fact
that this license is not the W3C document license?
