About HTML5, WHAT WG and the stated will to "converge"; how is this going  
to work in practice? Will we base the work of the HTML WG upon the work  
WHAT WG has done, will we start from scratch or something inbetween? Your  
thoughts?

My initial reaction is that the two+ years WHAT WG has invested in the  
development of HTML5 and Web Forms 2.0 shouldn't be ignored. If the HTML  
WG ignores WHAT WG's work to any degree at all, I fear we might end up  
with two HTML5 specifications; one published by WHAT WG and one published  
by the W3C.
