I believe the ACTION-190 was closed when this document was published in January.  See:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-html-markup-20110113/

and of course it was republished recently:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-html-markup-20110405/

Does that answer your question?

Paul,

I was wondering whether you might give me an update on the status of this? 
I followed some of the links from your ACTION-190 [1]; as best I can tell it was put off for a week on 6 January 2011 [2], and then I lose the trail. 
This is about getting the author-only view back into the HTML5 Rec-track publication packages.

I have TAG ACTION 379, which is basically to make sure this happens eventually, so it would be helpful to know where this stands. Thank you very much.

Noah
