I have moved PING to the next version of HTML. (Since it's spread all over 
the spec, I couldn't easily create a separate W3C draft for it like I did 
with <device>, so this is now a section which, like the microdata 
vocabularies, is only in the WHATWG draft.)

I'll keep an eye on implementations -- if implementations of this feature 
come before we're done with HTML5 after all, it would be nice to be able 
to get this into HTML5. Since this is not a high-priority item for vendors 
I've spoken to, though, that might not happen.

Cheers,
