Just in case folks don't know. HTML5 also has a paragraph like this in
the Status of this Document:

  # The bulk of the text of this specification is also available in the
  # WHATWG HTML Living Standard, under a license that permits reuse of
  # the specification text.

Another possibility is to say something like

  | Anne van Kesteran authored most of the text in the spec.

in the Acknowledgment section. I'd note that in CSS specs an
Acknowledgment section is not always just a list of names and so suppose
this is doable.

I'm not pushing for this though, as I find this quite obvious.

+1, or perhaps Anne would like to object to this CfC no matter what?
