Just a thought in regards to the title discussion....some W3C TR docs I've seen have sub titles.

For example...
http://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/
Understanding WCAG 2.0
A guide to understanding and implementing WCAG 2.0

Maybe to address the concerns of clarity with the title of HTML 5 it could have a subtitle.  It'd be...

HTML 5
Syntax, Semantics and Behavior for Browsers, Documents,  Editors, Validators, and Other Implementations

Or whatever...

As an aside, I don't think your proposed title is accurate. The spec  
covers many conformance classes besides browsers, including documents,  
editors, validators, and non-browser implementations. If you wanted to  
call it "HTML Syntax, Semantics and Behavior for Browsers, Documents,  
Editors, Validators, and Other Implementations 5", then that would be  
accurate but I think pretty long-winded.

Maciej
