Hi Julian,

This is very true. One example: the image analysis paragraph remains
in the WHATWG
version plus added comments:

<!--END w3c-html--><!--POLITICS-->
User agents may also apply heuristics to help the user make use of
the image when the user is unable to see it, e.g. due to a visual
disability or because they are using a text terminal with no
graphics capabilities. Such heuristics could include, for instance,
optical character recognition (OCR) of text found within the image.
<!--START w3c-html--><!--POLITICS-->

And a bullet list:
<ul class="brief">

<li>Instead of this section, the W3C version has a different paragraph
explaining the difference between the W3C and WHATWG versions of
HTML.</li>

<li>The W3C version refers to the technology as HTML5, rather than
just HTML.</li>

<li>Examples that use features from HTML5 are not present in the W3C
version since the W3C version is published as HTML4 due to W3C
publication policies.</li>

<li>The W3C version includes a redundant and inconsistent reference to
the WCAG document.</li>

<li>The W3C version omits a paragraph of implementation advice for
political reasons.</li>

</ul>
