<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2008Mar/0405.html> and
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2008Mar/0443.html>  
cover related editorial stuff, but I see them neither mentioned in  
the issue tracker nor incorporated into the Editor's Draft <http:// 
www.w3.org/TR/2008/ED-cvs-member-20080514>.

I tend to agree with Fantasai's suggestion in <http://lists.w3.org/ 
Archives/Public/www-style/2008May/0146.html> to use "basic" and  
"extended" instead of "HTML4" and "SVG", although I still despise the  
X11 color keywords and consider "extended" almost euphemistic.

Yes, but the current structure of sections (and subsections) is not  
optimal at all. Anchors should be left as is, if possible, but this  
is much less important than a coherent order.
