By "zero outstanding issues" you mean "zero outstanding issues from
WHATWG point of view"?

Personally, I don't think that it was good idea to publish spec as
WHATWG last call when it is not ready to go to last call in W3C -- this
will greatly confuse people. At the end of you blog entry you wrote
"...HTML5 is a joint effort of W3C and WHATWG groups..." -- I would
expect that in joint effort groups are working closely together and that
they synchronize their publication/review cycles as much as possible in
order to not confuse people.

Have a nice day,
