It was, James, only you who used the word "completed".

I wrote "No thank you, I want to use HTML 5, where HTML 5
is derived from HTML 4.01 Strict rather than from something
that looks more like HTML 3.2 as modified by a committee. "

The "something" at the end of line 3 refers to the
WHAT Working Group's HTML5, on the adoption of which
as the starting point for further HTML development
we are being asked to vote.
