I suggest we put the following wordings for Anne's work and WHATWG to be credited. If we make consensus, let me use this content for publishing the WD.

As the co-Editors of W3C XHR spec wrote in the threads, we have our role and contribution in moving this spec toward the W3C REC. Up to the moment, we mostly had to take care of the gaps between W3C version and WHATWG version to make them convergent. We will try to make more productive discussions along the way from this point on.

[Status of this Document]
This section describes the status of this document at the time of its publication. Other documents may supersede this document. A list of current W3C publications and the latest revision of this technical report can be found in the W3C technical reports index at http://www.w3.org/TR/.

If you wish to make comments regarding this document in a manner that is tracked by the W3C, please submit them via using our public bug database (
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/enter_bug.cgi?product=WebAppsWG), or please send comments to public-webapps@w3.org (archived) with [XHR] at the start of the subject line.

The bulk of the text of this specification is also available in the WHATWG *XMLHttpRequest Living Standard (link to the whatwg spec)*, under a license that permits reuse of the specification text.

*The W3C Web Applications Working Group is the W3C working group responsible for this specification's progress along the W3C Recommendation track.* This specification is the 22 November 2012 Editor's Draft. 

Publication as an Editor's Draft does not imply endorsement by the W3C Membership. This is a draft document and may be updated, replaced or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is inappropriate to cite this document as other than work in progress.

*Work on this specification is also done at the WHATWG. The W3C Web Applications working group actively pursues convergence of XMLHttpRequest specification with the WHATWG.*

This document was produced by a group operating under the 5 February 2004 W3C Patent Policy. W3C maintains a public list of any patent disclosures made in connection with the deliverables of the group; that page also includes instructions for disclosing a patent. An individual who has actual knowledge of a patent which the individual believes contains Essential Claim(s) must disclose the information in accordance with section 6 of the W3C Patent Policy.

This document supersedes XMLHttpRequest 1.

+Special thanks to Anne van Kesteren who has provided nearly all the contents until he stepped down as a W3C editor and is now in succession providing discussions and contents as the editor of the XMLHttpRequest Living Standard in WHATWG which this version of the specification pursues convergence.
