ACTION-498: Report results of HTML5 WG consideration of conformance for 
extensions (their ISSUE 140), get TAG to prepare change proposal if necessary

I have updated the TAG action record [1] as follows:

I met F2F with the HTML working group to discuss this concern on 4 Nov 2010 
in Lyon. Minutes of that discussion are available at 
http://www.w3.org/2010/11/04-html-wg-minutes.html (note that the date on 
those minutes is incorrect [now fixed -- NRM]. The discussion was in fact 
on 4 Nov 2010).

I believe my concerns were heard and reasonably well understood. Henri 
Sivonen in particular seemed to share my concern, and to also believe that 
changes should be made to the HTML5 draft specification. The matter is now 
in the hands of the HTML WG and chairs, and is being tracked as
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/140 .

TAG ACTION-498 is now marked pending review, and I believe that we do not 
need further telcon discussion at this time.  I presume that I will be 
contacted by the HTML WG when they have a proposed disposition of their 
ISSUE 140, and I will report on that to the TAG.  We'll briefly discuss 
this during our bulk review of pending actions.

Regarding change proposals: repeating what I said in Lyon, there was from 
the start a change proposal from me in the bugzilla entry [2] that led to 
the HTML WG issue. That proposal was discussed with the HTML WG in Lyon, 
and as noted above, there was some sympathy for making the change. 
Accordingly, I see no need for the TAG to make additional change proposals 
at this time.  Let's see what the HTML WG proposes to do.
