Nobody is proposing anything whatsoever with respect to the WHATWG: 
neither proposing that that the WHATWG ceases immediately nor that it 
continues in perpetuity.  If it comforts you to know that substantially 
similar material is currently being made available by an organization 
without a patent policy, feel free to note that in your comments.

Does that meet your needs?
