I don't think it's a technical issue to discuss. There should be
corresponding publication rules.

Art, Charles, Doug,
Can you help clarifying which links we have to use?

In the proposed version, I've changed the links to the following specs:
- [CORS], [DOM], [DOMPS], [HTML] from the WHATWG version to the latest
W3C TR doc.
- [FILEAPI], [PROGRESSEVENTS], [WEBIDL] from the latest W3C ED to the
latest W3C TR doc.

This change does not affect any links in the result doc, and in fact
this proposed publication will reduce the gap.

The proposed WD is aligned with the WHATWG version except:
- Progress Events is not merged but staying as a separate spec.
- Streams API is deferred to next version.
- The last three commits (Nov 22) in WHATWG has not been incorporated yet.
