Here are some editorial comments on the Status section:

1. Intro sentence

	" This document is the 5 February 2010 Editor's Draft of HTML: The Markup Language."

I suggest you change this to:

	"This is the first public working draft of "HTML: The Markup Language".

2. Last paragraph

"The existence of this document as an Editor's Draft does not imply endorsement by the W3C Membership. This is a draft document and may be updated, replaced or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is inappropriate to cite this document as other than work in progress

I suggest you change "Editor's Draft" to "Working Draft".

3. Missing Patent Policy paragraph

Shouldn't the usual Patent Policy paragraph be included:

"This document was produced by a group operating under the 5 February 2004 W3C Patent Policy. W3C maintains a public list of any patent disclosures made in connection with the deliverables of the group; that page also includes instructions for disclosing a patent. An individual who has actual knowledge of a patent which the individual believes contains Essential Claim(s) must disclose the information in accordance with section 6 of the W3C Patent Policy."

4. References in Status section

"This non-normative document is intended to complement the normative conformance criteria defined in the specification HTML5: A vocabulary and associated APIs for HTML and XHTML, and is similar in scope to the HTML5 (Author Edition) subset of that specification."

First I was trying to figure out the status of the [HTML5 (Author Edition)] document.  Is it actually a W3C published WD?

Second I recommend that the references in this paragraph be added to the References section.
