The TAG thanks the HTML WG for its careful attention to the concerns we 
raised [1] regarding the non-nomrative status of the HTML5 Edition for Web 
Authors. We have reviewed the HTML WG Chairs' decision [2], noting 
specifically the intention to include the following revised status text:

"This document is an automated redaction of the full HTML5 specification. 
As such, the two documents are supposed to agree on normative matters 
concerning Web authors. However, if the documents disagree, this is a bug 
in the redaction process and the unredacted full HTML specification takes 
precedence. Readers are encouraged to report such discrepancies as bugs in 
the bug tracking system of the HTML WG."

I am pleased to inform you that on its teleconference today the TAG 
resolved that the above does indeed satisfactorily address our concerns, 
presuming of course that the draft is indeed published as amended, and that 
over the long term this is maintained as a normative part of an eventual 
HTML5 W3C Recommendation. Thank you again.
