This hasn't stopped the WHATWG so far, we've been getting tons of feedback 
for literally years without freezing development. It hasn't been a 
problem. I have to agree with the other commentors in that I don't really 
understand why the WHATWG work needs to freeze for this group to review 
it. That's not to say that the WHATWG would ignore the HTML WG, anything 
that could be done to help would be done, of course. But asking another WG 
to just stop work is not really reasonable. (Consider, do any W3C WGs ever 
ask other W3C WGs to stop work so they can comment on a draft?)
