I agree.  The W3C should not be in the business of plagiarizing the
work of others.

plagiarism. n. The practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and
passing them off as one's own.

The Status of this Document section should state clearly that this
document is not an original work of authorship of the W3C.  Instead,
the document should clearly state that it is based in part (or in
whole) on the WHATWG version.  I don't have a problem with the W3C
attaching its copyright and license to the document.  I do have a
problem with plagiarism.
