This WG adopted the HTML5 draft as its own. Besides some boilerplate
stuff up top, both documents are identical. So, by definition, the
differences document reflects the differences between the HTML WG's
draft and HTML4.

I'm not sure what it would mean for the WG to "put its own mark" on
the draft. It seems to me that your real objection is to this WG's
adoption of the HTML5 draft, and not to the differences document.

Also, I don't understand what you mean by "W3C differences." Are they
a special kind of difference?
