Lachlan Hunt:

     I object to this document being on the Rec-track. These are
     guidelines, and as such, they should be non-normative descriptions
     referring to the normative requirements in the HTML specification
     itself. If this document is to be published, it should instead be
     on the Note-track.

     I also object to this document claiming to replace sections of
     HTML5. The WG should not publish or endorse specifications that
     directly contradict another specification from the same WG.
     Instead, any reasonable portions of this document should ultimately
     be merged with the HTML specification and unreasonable portions
     should be dropped.
