Our current charter has milestones and deliverables for HTML5. 
Ultimately I expect that there will be a charter for whatever comes 
after HTML5.  Down the road, this information will be helpful in 
formulating that charter.

Shorter term, there likely will be a brief presentation (on the order of 
15 minutes) on future plans for HTML at the next W3C AC meeting.  This 
data collected on this wiki page will be helpful background information 
for that presentation.  If history is any guide, the slides for that 
presentation will be published publicly.

There is no reason to stop entering feature requests as entries in 
bugzilla, and this wiki page can point to such.  Said bugs will likely 
be RESOLVED LATER: <http://tinyurl.com/5sj9xdo>, even though we don't 
currently have an approved plan for a later release.

Sorry if I was unclear.  This page is for what comes after HTML5.  No 
change in process for the development of HTML5 is meant to be implied by 
the creation of this wiki page.
