It does not appear to me that the whatwg process is conducted as a W3C CG.
Part of my opinion on this is based on various statements of Ian and ms2ger
that appear to set the W3C and the WHATWG in opposition to one another. As
such, I do not have the perception that the work in WHATWG is being done as
part of W3C process.

But, as for IPR, I note that the IPR process of CGs is not the same as IPR
process for WGs, and that incorporating technical work of a CG into the
technical work of a WG does not appear to have a well defined process
(please correct me if I'm wrong).
