Although I just do not care about the name ("qu'importe le flacon pourvu
que j'ai l'ivresse"), I don't think I ever said the contrary in the
past; I even told the same many times to one of our co-chairs through
private email. Quoting myself below:

   As I wrote in my comments on the charter, I fail to see how the future
   of HTML can be anything but WHATWG's HTML 5. I also think Ian is
   one of the best spec editors we have onboard in the Web world, and he
   spent more time than anyone else working on HTML interoperability.
   Having him edit HTML WG's HTML seems to me the best way to ensure
   success and make the bridge between WHATWG and W3C.

+1, of course; this WG never really had any other serious option imho...
