           Summary: normative reference to specification whose
                    author/editor is undisclosed
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: glenn@skynav.com
         QAContact: public-html-bugzilla@w3.org

At present, HTML5 contains a normative reference, [DOMPARSING], for whom the
(sole) author/editor's identity is not disclosed, and is intentionally
obscured. As such, this makes it difficult or impossible to evaluate the W3C
patent policy as related to authorial interest in essential IPR regarding the
referenced specification.

Please remove this reference or find an alternative author/editor/publisher
willing to disclose their identity as a legally recognizable individual or
entity.
