OK, thanks. I guess I should have realised this.

Still, there are some confusing indicators. For instance, the W3C hosted WF2
says (under "Status of this document") that feedback should go to
<whatwg@whatwg.org> and <public-appformats@w3.org>, and the W3C hosted HTML5
draft contains several pointers to the WHATWG version of WF2:
<http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/html5/spec/Overview.html?content-type=text/html;%20charset=utf-8#forms>.

Perhaps those are just typos, but they do make it somewhat unclear what
exactly WF2 is, how it relates to HTML5, what HTML WG members are to make of
it.
