Re: Request that "conforming document" be better defined and more carefully referenced

On Feb. 10, I sent the comment to which this is a reply [1], requesting 
that an effort be made to clarify use of the term "conforming document" in 
the HTML5 draft Recommendation.  I have looked at the latest HTML5 draft, 
and as best I can tell, it does not address my concern.

As the HTML WG moves forward with its efforts to resolve issues, I am 
curious what the status is of this one.  I don't >think< I've received any 
indication that it's being tracked anywhere, but if I missed that, please 
accept my apologies. Is this going to be addressed at some point in the 
future, and if so is there a bugzilla entry or other tracking document I 
should follow?

Also, very observant followers of the TAG's work will note that I have for 
months had a (self-assigned) action on a related topic, I.e. to request 
clarification of the term "applicable specifications" in the HTML 5 drafts. 
  Revisiting the question again, I've convinced myself that my concerns in 
this area are already pretty well signaled in email [1], and that should a 
clarification be needed regarding "applicable specs.", it will naturally 
result from the already requested clarification regarding "conforming 
documents".  Accordingly, I do not anticipate sending a further request 
after all, and I will inform the TAG of my intention to drop that TAG action.

Thank you very much.
