Which parts of the patch do you think are contradictory? Is it the full
patch? Could you register a bug?

So, wrt extension specs: the way I understand them is that they are for the
HTML5 spec: they specify features that somebody hopes to still get into
HTML5, rather than HTML5.1 [1].  If this is your intention - that it should
get implemented for HTML5 - then you should indeed write an extension spec.
If instead you regard it as a feature at risk in HTML5.1 or one that you
object to, then IIUC you should register a bug on HTML5.1. Basically,
HTML5.1 will have a number of features in it that are proposals and not yet
implemented. The extension spec approach for HTML5.1 would in my
understanding take effect when HTML5.1 goes into CR and features that do
not have sufficient implementation will get pulled out.

Note that I have not checked my interpretation with the chairs, so I may be
off. I guess we need clarification on what to do wrt extensin
specifications and HTML5.1.

Best Regards,
Silvia.
