How are we going to get more editors? They don't grow on trees. It's a  
good idea in principle, until you start trying to get any editors. All  
but one spec branched off HTML 5 has dithered away and work has come  
to a complete stop on. I don't think anyone would like HTML 5 to be as  
big as it is, but unless the other parts can be actively edited (some  
of which HTML 5 relies heavily upon), there's nowhere better to put  
them if we want any spec for them at all, sadly.
