Request noted. We'll consider this as part of the next round of publications.

You can use the "Clone this Bug" feature in bugzilla to easily make a copy of the bug report in a new component, or you can reopen the existing bug and move it to the "HTML 5.1" component. Up to you. I think cloning would be cleaner in this case. Or I can make the clone for you if you'd rather not do the mechanics, so long as you point me to the original.

FWIW in my day job we clone bugs all the time to track resolution for multiple releases, when there is a stable branch and a trunk. So it doesn't seem like an undue burden to me. Perhaps it does to others though.

Cheers,
Maciej
