Apologies, I had sent this to wrong email group:

I had originally closed the bug about splitting out the Communications
Section into its own spec, but I'm wondering now if I should re-open
it.

Currently, the document[1] is described as an HTML5 document, but the
intention of this split is that it eventually find a home in the Web
Applications group. It definitely fits within the WebApps charter [2]
more than it does our own.

I'm also concerned about the references to the WhatWG document in the
specification. I don't feel that's appropriate in a W3C specification,
because all this does is create confusion. Frankly, I don't think we,
or the WhatWG, are doing enough to prevent such confusion.

What should I do at this point? Should I re-open the bug? Do we need
to approach someone in the WebApps group about publishing it as a FPWD
in that group? If we have edits we want to make to this document, do
we do these edits in this group?
