It means 5.0 — after that there's 5.1. We're pursing an aggressive timeline to
get 5.0 out and there simply is no way that I can see of the work required here
to fit into that frame.

We're going to be developing the current version and the next version in
parallel, and HTML.next is not expected to come 15 years later but rather in
relatively quick succession, with incremental changes being folded in as they
are ready.

So the idea is not that we're excluding this but rather that we're not solving
it this month. I can only hope that the XML WG will understand that as
consensus creeps in this petty pace from day to day we can't address all
problems at once, and do have to prioritise so that we release something before
our brief candles are out.
