It seems to reflect the current state of the HTML5 spec, AFAICT, since the  
HTML5 spec lists obsolete features in the "Obsolete features" section.

http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/obsolete.html#obsolete

As for open issues, the diffs draft says:

"HTML5 is still a draft. The contents of HTML5, as well as the contents of  
this document which depend on HTML5, are still being discussed on the HTML  
Working Group and WHATWG mailing lists. The open issues are linked from  
the HTML5 draft."
