As per Sam's request, this e-mail is a report of the status of issues on 
the agenda that have actions due before 2009-05-22 (11 days from now), 
from the persective of the spec.

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

   There is some new feedback on this topic that I haven't yet taken into 
   account.


ISSUE-41 (Decentralized-extensibility): Decentralized extensibility

   I recently wrote a proposal for a way for communities and individuals 
   to mark up name-value pair data in HTML in a consistently processable 
   manner, which has become known as "microdata". Given the controversy 
   around this topic, I expect we will have many lively debates about it 
   in the coming weeks, and I expect the proposal to change to take into 
   account issues that people find with it. There are also some specific 
   use cases that I haven't yet dealt with, which I will continue to deal 
   with over the next few days.


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

   Based on Adam's advice, I recently updated the Origin text in the spec 
   to match his Internet Draft. Further progress is blocked on the IETF 
   publishing this as a standards-track document (along with the review 
   that is involved with this, of course).


ISSUE-35 (aria-processing): Need to define processing requirements for 
aria states and properties when used in html

   I'm waiting for the ARIA group to respond to last call feedback.


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

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

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