The HTML Working Group Charter (from March 2007) addresses this:

http://www.w3.org/2007/03/HTML-WG-charter.html

"The mission of the HTML Working Group, part of the HTML Activity, is  
to continue the evolution of HTML (including classic HTML and XML  
syntaxes)."

There is some additional language in charter that reinforces that point.
