I see nothing inconsistent or disingenuous with regard to W3C process here.
There seems to be a suggestion here that the process is broken, and I just
don't see that.

If you as a contributor wish to have more prominent mention in the W3C
version, then it would be appropriate for you to discuss this with the
current editors. Since it sounds like this is a cooperative process, I
would expect you and the editors to find a satisfactory solution.

However, I think this solution need not include making a normative
reference to the ongoing WHATWG work in this area. It certainly wouldn't
hurt to include an informative reference, with sufficient qualification as
to why that reference is used.
