I agree that it would be useful to highlight the Last Call Working Drafts and the companion WDs we published on May 25 on the WG home page:
http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9105 

We will get working on that ASAP.

Subject: The HTML5 Last Call document and Document linked from W3C HTML WG main page are not the same

You've put out a Last Call for review of the HTML5 specification, but the HTML5 specification linked from the main HTML WG page is not the same as the Last Call document. For instance, the media elements have an attribute, crossorigin, in the HTML WG linked document that isn't in the Last Call document.

In fact, I can't see a link to the Last Call document anywhere in the HTML WG web page.

Linking an informal editor draft rather than the Last Call document in the HTML WG web page is going to cause confusion. You need to link a stable review document in the HTML WG web page, and you need to ensure both are labeled accurately, so people know which to review for Last Call.
