I wasn't aware of the authoring guide before this, and after skimming through, it seems like a large step in the right direction. What is the best place to discuss this guide? Here on the HTML WG list?

And what will be the relationship between the HTML5 specification and the authoring guide? The authoring guide will of course reference the HTML5 specification, but what about the other way around? Can an informative reference to the authoring guide be present in the HTML5 specification?
