ok, if the WF2 draft has moved to W3C space, where it is ostensively 
being reviewed and developed, why does the pointer to the WF2 draft 
in the W3C-based version of the HTML5 draft we are all supposed to 
be using as the basis for our work, point to a document in whatwg.org 
space?  should it not point to the WF2 draft submitted to, and 
accepted by the W3C?

i am formally requesting that the editors make this small, but crucial,
change as soon as possible -- such a relatively minor change should be 
able to be effected in a matter of moments, although in this case, 
substitute must for should...
