Dear all,

First of all congrats for the FPWD of HTML 5. However I'm a big 
concerned about the size and modularity of this spec and as a result its 
readability. I have never seen such a big spec in the W3C space. You are 
mixing in the same document:

- Markup
- APIs very different: UI APIs, Connection APIs, DOM APIs
- Algorithms for browsing implementation of features
- Some features present in browsers not documented in any place
- Events and different kind of events
- Application-related issues such as session management or
offline interaction
- Examples or material for a primer document

I think you need to refactor this spec in different documents each one 
addressing different things.
It would be good for the public who will understand better what is HTML 
5 and its related technologies.

Best Regards
