I am having trouble finding a way to treat this as a formal objection. 
Per the W3C Process[1] "In the W3C process, an individual may register a 
Formal Objection to a decision".  This is a problem as I have yet to 
find any record that indicates that the Working Group has decided to 
include references to the WHATWG in the specification of HTML5.

The path I would recommend is to open a bug report.  If the resolution 
of that bug report does not resolve your concern, the bug can be marked 
with a TrackerRequest, and that will[6] result in a decision (even if 
only a declaration of Amicable Consensus) which CAN be appealed. 
Furthermore, once an issue is raised, a link to the issue itself in the 
relevant section(s) can be requested.
