How about this friendly amendment that doesn't go into status  
information for a particular spec:

"Yes. The HTML5 specification contains a broad set of technologies at  
varying degrees of adoption and implementation. W3C encourages people

the Candidate Recommendation period) and provide feedback to the  
Working Groups in order to improve specification quality."
