So, it just reads:

"The bulk of the text of this specification is also available in the WHATWG Notifications API Standard, under a license that permits reuse of the specification text."

Knowing what the differences are is important. If there are none, that's ok. But please make that clear. If there are some, it's important to explain what they are so if someone goes to implement this, they are aware they are different. Another thing the spec could do is just tell people which one is the authoritative source (hence an implementer should follow that one when implementing).  

I'd be satisfied if the above is addressed before proceeding. Just a sentence or two would make a big difference!
