David, where the document is hosted is extremely important.

It is no longer a W3C document. Which means it is no longer covered by the W3C
patent policy. 

It doesn't matter that there's some planned maybe possibly future date where it
might make its way back to the W3C. Until it is in the W3C in some official
capacity, then the text needs to be maintained in the HTML5 document.

And all the people of the HTML WG group know of is the first bug report, which
was not related to separating this section out into a document and hosting it
within the WHATWG server. This was an additional activity beyond the original
scope of the bug. 

Again, moving text out of a LC document within the W3C into a document that's
not a W3C document is not something I would hope the W3C takes lightly. 

We'll have to disagree.
