Yes, following the "keywords" is a good start but unfortunately, a diff 
may include changes for more than one of the keywords (sections) :-(.

I scanned those changes again. It appears to me that most of the changes 
are for the WebSocket API and Web Workers specs (and those would 
presumably not be applied to W3C's HTML5). However, it also appears at 
least some of the changes are for the HTML5 spec; f.ex. the addition of 
lines 4028-4033 (complete.html).

(Perhaps the line numbers will give you a clue as to which 
part/section/keyword  they apply).
