hmm interesting results. I would not have thought, we would get  
formal objections. I sent an HTML version of the status section to  
Anne Van Kesteren. I can commit it if necessary.

When I read the formal objections, I see a few things. Some of the  
comments make the case of "HTML 5 differences from HTML 4" document  
very strong. A few things that are worthwhile to remind.

* html5-diff is a *working draft*
* html5-diff when finished will be a W3C Working Group Note.
* html5-diff is unlikely to be a W3C Note before html5 specification  
reaches CR.

What I mean is that the content is at unstable than html 5  
specification. For me it is a reading guide of html 5 specification.  
But let's see if we could address some of the concerns. Below is the  
status section I have sent on Friday to Anne.
I can commit it if it helps people to have a better reading.

We could modify both the status to point out that there are formal  
objections or disagreements. I would prefer not.

What would be a satisfying  introduction text for those who have  
A text that would make clearer the three points which are above.
