The web developers edition is a mechanically subsetted version, with
different css styling so isn't really relevant to the discussion of
the dangers of diverging forked development.

The W3C announcement eg as phrased at

http://www.w3.org/QA/2012/07/html5_and_htmlnext.html

is basically in line with what I said. This HTML WG should work towards
HTML5 and the WHAT CG  should work on HTML.next.

All I was saying if that we are planning to add new features to HTML
beyond what is currently specified in HTML5 then common sense dictates
that they be compatible with HTML.next.
