Is it just me who feels offended by Ian's lack of respect towards the 
W3C, the HTML WG, and the process of consensus? I find this behavior 
unprofessional and intolerable:

"Eh, I just find it amusing... HTML5 still lives happily at 
whatwg.org/html unaffected by the politics! :-)" [1,2]

How long will the W3C tolerate a parallel, conflicting version of the 
spec where the editor is ignoring and publicly mocking the W3C working 
group's decisions?

Regards,
