As per Sam's request, this e-mail is a report of the status of issues on 
the agenda that have actions due before 2009-05-08 (11 days from now), 
from the persective of the spec.

ISSUE-54 (doctype-legacy-compat): tools that can't generate <!DOCTYPE 
html>

ISSUE-32 (table-summary): how to provide a summary of a table, e.g. for 
unsighted navigation?

ISSUE-55 (head-profile): head/@profile missing, but used in other 
specifications/formats

ISSUE-60 (html5-xhtml-namespace): Reuse of 1999 XHTML namespace is 
potentially misleading/wrong

ISSUE-31 (missing-alt): What to do when a reasonable text equivalent is 
unknown/unavailable?

ISSUE-4 (html-versioning): HTML Versioning and DOCTYPEs

   It's not clear to me what needs changing in the spec for these issues.


ISSUE-56 (urls-webarch): Assess whether "URLs" section/definition 
conflicts with Web architecture

   I am waiting for DanC's draft to reach a standards track (either at the 
   W3C or the IETF) before removing the relevant part of the HTML5 spec 
   (so that I have something to reference).


ISSUE-59 (normative-language-reference): Should the HTML WG produce a 
separate document that is a normative language reference and if so what 
are the requirements

   As far as I can tell we have now published such a document, since the 
   HTML5 spec has an alternative style sheet that can be used to hide the 
   implementation requirements.


ISSUE-63 (origin-req-scope): Origin header: in scope? required for this 
release?

   I am waiting for abarth's draft to reach a standards track (either at 
   the W3C or the IETF) before removing the relevant part of the HTML5 
   spec (so that I have something to reference).


ISSUE-41 (Decentralized-extensibility): Decentralized extensibility

   I am currently working through some of the feedback received on this 
   topic.
