I think some people are asking for a separate spec that would govern the 
behavior of software similar to html5lib.

http://code.google.com/p/html5lib/

This software does not implement Window or navigation, but it appears to 
perform a useful task. It seems to me that either the tree built by 
html5lib is a total sham, or the HTML5 spec is not as intertwined as 
some are claiming.
