           Summary: Document conformance/validity has to be stable over
                    the time
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW

         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch

On several places conformance of document relies on external registry which is
not versioned -- it can add or remove any value at any time. This means that
for frozen document its validity can change. This is unacceptable for many
reasons.

Each edition of HTML spec should include snapshot of such registries which can
easily change over time to create more stable grounds for document conformance.

This includes rel values, extensions of metadata names and extensions to pragma
directives.
