I object to publishing the HTML5 spec and the Differences spec. 

Either the HTML5 spec must entirely drop the _vendor/vendor-- 
attributes.
Or the HTML5 spec must mark it as controversial - as well as link it to 
the outcome of ISSUE-41.

If the _vendor/vendor-- attributes are not removed, then the 
Differences author is requested to familiarize himself with the content 
of the HTML5 spec, and - thereafter - to update the Differences 
document with information about the _vendor/vendor-- extensibility 
solution.

I am willing to file bugs, if the chairs think it is necessary.
