Blocker for PR: links to HTML5 spec

One blocker that we haven't talked about but is going to bite us when
we're going to move to PR is the references to the HTML5 specification.
We aren't supposed to reference a moving draft from a w3c recommendation
since it's supposed to be stable.

One workaround is to remove the dependencies by copying the necessary
bits into an appendix of our spec, indicating that the HTML5 spec takes
precedence once it becomes stable. Zhiheng, would this be even possible?

We could also engage in a discussion with the HTML working to find an
alternative as well. We might need to get creative here...

Here are all the references we currently have:

In the meantime, we'll get the CR published.
