aloha!

since the copy of the HTML5 draft at:

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/html5

is now identified as a W3C draft, is it possible to author it to an 
ISO 639-2 specified language, instead of the experimental 
"lang=en-US-x-Hixie"?

i believe that the W3C Technical Report Publication Policy, (Pubrules), 
suggests "en" or "en-us" (nothing personal, fellow anglophones, but W3C
documents follow "en-us" rules as far as spelling, etc.)

thank you,
gregory.
