hi Bronislav

you wrote:

I was just looking at WHATWG wiki and there is nice sentence: "In
general the WHATWG will ensure that the normative content of the
specifications (the requirements on authors and implementors) remains
the same so long as the W3C group doesn't demonstrate any serious lapses
in judgement."


I am sure the same can be said from the other viewpoint,

The W3C HTML working group  will ensure that the normative content of the
specifications (the requirements on authors and implementors) remains
the same so long as the WHATWG group doesn't demonstrate any serious lapses
in judgement.


Which is why the 2 specs have diverged on author conformance
requirements and advice as each group considers the other to have made
lapses in judgement.
