Chairs,

I must strenuously protest that today the official W3C Editor's Draft
Specification (http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/) is currently pointing to the
WHATWG specification, which includes a number of items that are
specifically *NOT* included in the W3C Draft, including the addition of
Microdata (http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#microdata)
and references to WebSRT
(http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#websrt-cue-text-render
ing-rules) - a format in particular that the Accessibility Task Force
media sub-team have been persistent and explicit in ensuring *NOT* be
added to the Draft Specification at this time.

I personally would rather see a black 404 page than to have the W3C
pointing to this document, which does not reflect the W3C specification
nor it's consensus based approach. At the very least, it should point to
the most current W3C Working Draft at
http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-html5-20100624/ 

When specifically can we expect this to be corrected?
