The following answers have been successfully submitted to 'Release "HTML 5"
specification as a W3C Working Draft?' (HTML Working Group) for .



---------------------------------
Release "HTML 5" specification as a W3C Working Draft?
----
Shall we release HTML 5 as a W3C Working Draft? Specifically, the
co-chairs (Dan Connolly and Chris Wilson) will choose between
v1.344 (Thu Dec 20 21:42:20 2007 UTC) and any later revisions from the
editors this week.


 * ( ) Abstain
 * ( ) Yes
 * ( ) No
 * (x) Formally Object

Rationale: 
The process has not moved forward according to W3 procedures: especially
in the spirit of consensus building. Complaints in these questionnaire
responses that claim no hope of consensus could ever be established
reflect the sentiments of those from a single block of the group that
believes it can simply push through its agenda regardless of the spirit of
W3 process and without trying to build consensus. A W3 recommendation
created under such circumstances will not become an effective standard.
Rather than decreasing the number of votes needed for an action to pass
the working group, we should focus on building consensus and balancing the
different interests involved.




---------------------------------
Release "HTML 5 differences from HTML 4" specification as a W3C Working
Draft as well?
----
Provided the question above carries,
Shall we release HTML 5 differences from HTML 4 as a W3C Working Draft?
Specifically, revision 1.33 of 2007-10-22 11:17:20 plus any
publication-related changes (e.g. status section, typos, broken links)
agreed by the editor (Anne van Kesteren) and one of Dan Connolly, Chris
Wilson, or Mike Smith.



 * ( ) Abstain
 * ( ) Yes
 * (x) No
 * ( ) Formally Object

Rationale: 
While this document should be released along side the HTML working draft,
neither is ready in terms of W3 process.
