  the current text, the existence of the section at all, or the idea
  that the working group should even spend time discussing the concept

  <!-- context and rationale (required) -->
  This specification represents an addition to HTML beyond HTML5,
  and is published as a separate document in the W3C under the advice
  of the HTML WG chairs.</p><!-- UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPH TO BE REMOVED OR EDITED WITHOUT TALKING TO IAN FIRST --><!-- required patent boilerplate --><p>This document was produced by a group operating under the <a href="http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Patent-Policy-20040205/">5
  February 2004 W3C Patent Policy</a>. W3C maintains a <a href="http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/40318/status" rel="disclosure">public list of
  any patent disclosures</a> made in connection with the deliverables
  of the group; that page also includes instructions for disclosing a
  patent. An individual who has actual knowledge of a patent which the
  individual believes contains <a href="http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Patent-Policy-20040205/#def-essential">Essential
  Claim(s)</a> must disclose the information in accordance with <a href="http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Patent-Policy-20040205/#sec-Disclosure">section
  6 of the W3C Patent Policy</a>.</p><!-- UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES IS THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPH TO BE REMOVED OR EDITED WITHOUT TALKING TO IAN FIRST --><!-- temporarily moved to Status of this Document after discussion with plh in October 2009 --><!-- will be moved back to below W3C copyright in April 2009 --><p class="alt copyright">The <a href="http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/">WHATWG
