The "known issue" markup is what I've used to record issues I run across 
while I'm editing the text, which aren't recorded elsewhere. There are 
literally thousands of open issues (in the form of wiki entries from this 
group and e-mails that I've received or that were sent to the WHATWG 
list), and recording them in the spec in the red issue boxes would 
probably take as long as resolving them.
