I reviewed the email on this and it looks like I overstated Ian's  
position. What he said was: ""It's part of the HTML language at this  
point, whether we like it or not -- and it seems sensible to me to  
define the HTML language in the HTML spec."[1] That sounds to me like  
a preference to keep <keygen> in the main spec, rather than a strong  
position against splitting it out.

Maciej
