Philippe,

Re the specific case of the Progress Events spec - when it was last 
published it included non-normative references to both version of HTML:

   http://www.w3.org/TR/progress-events/#references

May we do that again? (I interpret that to mean the W3C has a fixed 
version of HTML and the WHATWG has a tip-of-the-tree version of HTML and 
as such, I don't think it  'disses the HTMLWG nor the W3C.)
