Hello WebPlat,

With thanks to everyone who contributed, and to the HTML editors in particular, this is a Call For Consensus (CFC) to request W3C publish the HTML5.1 Editor's Draft (ED) [1] as a PR.

Please note, this CFC is being sent to public-webapps@w3.org as the official email list noted in the WebPlat charter.

Please respond by end of day on Friday 9th September 2016. Responses maybe given in reply to this email, or on Github [2]. Positive responses are preferred and encouraged, but silence will be taken as consent to the proposal.

Following Candidate Recommendation (CR), several "at risk" features were removed, whilst others were retained. Details can be found in the status section of the ED.

The HTML5.1 Implementation report [3] references three features with no known native implementations, and three features with one known implementation. In each case the W3C specification aligns with the WHATWG specification.

Of the features with one iplementation, we expect that there will be more implementations in the future. Of those with no implementations:

1. the algorithm steps to support CSP have no impact unless the relevant parts of CSP *are* supported, in which case they specify the expected interoperable behaviour. The chairs expect such CSP support to occur relatively soon. 
If it appears that this will not be implemented in the future, this change is likely to be reverted in HTML 5.2.

2. the algorithm steps to support closing a blob with the FileAPI's
close() method likewise have no impact unless the method is supported. 
Since the future
of that method is under discussion, this part of the relevant algorithm will be a candidate for removal from HTML 5.2.

3. probablySupportsContext is a convenience function to enhance performance when using canvas. If this does not seem likely to be implemented, it will be a candidate for removal from HTML 5.2

  The WebPlat chairs recommend supporting this proposal. Although it is not perfect, it represents a substantial improvement over the HTML5 Recommendation, so publishing it would be helpful. Rather than hold up the publication of these improvements, we can continue to improve and iterate the HTML specification as HTML5.2.
