Please define polyglot markup’s relationship to HTML5. Sam recently described
it as an applicable spec in HTML5's meaning of it,

http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/infrastructure.html#other-applicable-specifications

with the nuance that polyglot markup is *also* a subset of HTML5. I think this
should be explicitly expressed in the polyglot markup. I guess it is enough if
it is an informative statement.
