Thanks.

Nits:

"The working groups maintains a list of all bug reports that the editor 
has not yet tried to address and a list of issues for which the chairs 
have not yet declared a decision. The editor also maintains a list of 
all e-mails that he has not yet tried to address. These bugs, issues, 
and e-mails apply to all HTML specifications, not just this one."

The first link

   a list of all bug reports that the editor has not yet tried to address

produces zero results, so it appears something is wrong with the query part.

"These bugs, issues, and e-mails apply to all HTML specifications, not 
just this one."

s/HTML specifications/specification/

unless we want to discuss what exactly an "HTML specification" is :-)

Also, if we include links to BugZilla queries in the first place, why 
not make them specific to this draft?

Finally, more alignment with the sister specification (RDFa) would be 
good. It currently has:

"The publication of this document by the W3C as a W3C Working Draft does 
not imply endorsement by the W3C HTML Working Group or the W3C as a 
whole. In particular,

     * There are one or more alternate methods of adding data without 
using RDFa, such as [microdata].
     * There are discussions of alternate extensibility mechanisms, 
covered in [issue-41], which might allow other ways of integrating RDFa.
     * There is concern that continued development of this document 
belongs in a different working group."

which I think is very helpful in understanding the status of these 
documents.

Best regards, Julian
