Sam Ruby and Dan Connolly asked me to send proposed issue closures in  
individual emails, with clear subject lines, and Cc'd to the issue  
originator when possible. Apologies for the spam. If there are no  
objections, I will close this issue on 2009-09-03.

ISSUE-54: doctype-legacy-compat - tools that can't generate <!DOCTYPE  
html>
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/54

As I understand it, we have consensus on the solution to this issue,  
which is <!DOCTYPE HTML SYSTEM "about:legacy-compat">. The spec has  
been updated to include this option. As far as I know, the only reason  
this issue is open is for some action on registering the about: URI  
scheme. There is an Internet-Draft (last updated 8/12) for the about:  
URI scheme:

http://www.ietf.org/id/draft-holsten-about-uri-scheme-02.txt

I believe no further action is needed for HTML5 Last Call. The  
progress and details of this Internet-Draft should now be tracked via  
the IETF. Since we have consensus on ISSUE-54 itself, we should close  
it. If anyone knows of a reason that further progress on the  
registration should block HTML5 Last Call, I suggest we raise a new  
issue to track whatever concretely needs to happen with the  
registration.

Regards,
Maciej
