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

Rationale: 





---------------------------------
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: 
that's a STRONG no -- i think the WG needs to take a closer "look" at the
differences document before it is issued -- will the difference document
be updated as the HTML5 WG is updated?  how will the process of updating
be handled -- by hand or automated?  does anne, given all of his other
commitments, need more editorial assistance?  furthermore, since the HTML5
working draft is being released with reservations on the part of a not
insignificant portion of the HTML WG, it would make more sense to achieve
more stability with the HTML5 working draft, before comparing it to HTML4
