The author is not undisclosed, he's pseudonymous.  Ms2ger participates in the
W3C as well under that pseudonym, and is a member of both the HTMLWG and
WebApps WG (possibly among others).  He edits DOM Core under the pseudonym too:

I'm not aware of any legal principle or W3C policy that's inconsistent with
pseudonymous participation.  For instance, signing a document with a pseudonym
is as legally binding as using a more conventional name.  Presumably the W3C
staff are aware that Ms2ger is participating pseudonymously as an editor and
don't believe it conflicts with the patent policy or anything else.
