If we are to have a poll to determine which drafts to publish, I'd like 
to request that the questions not be phrased in a way that makes the 
publication of one contingent on another.

Given that Both Mike and Manu have stated that their drafts are not 
ready for publication, that leaves just HTML5 and the HTML4 diffs draft.

I believe the poll should ask the following questions, or equivalent:

1. Should the HTML WG publish a new Working Draft of HTML 5?
2. Should the HTML WG publish a new Working Draft of HTML 5 differences 
from HTML 4?

The Possible options for each question chould be something like this:
- Yes, as is.
- Yes, with minor changes
- No, until substantial changes are made
- Formally object
And a text field for any explanations.
