As I said in my note to Jeff, the HTML5 work we did mostly predates the 
"product page" form of tracking, and I don't propose to spend the time to 
speeklunk the record to create a page retroactively. The product pages are 
mainly for planning from this point forward.

That said, various specific TAG initiatives have been pursued under the 
HTML5 review banner. For example, in 2008 we first raised a concern about 
the integration of the language specification into what is an some respects 
a larger user-agent specification as well. Work with the HTML WG, spread 
over nearly three years, has resulted in a plan that the TAG considers to 
be a significant improvement. [1,2] I don't have one comprehensive list of 
all HTML5-related review work that that TAG ever did, but the HTML section 
from our July 2010 status report [3] is representative. The recent proposal 
by the TAG for increased focus on the Microdata/RDFa overlap issue results 
in part from our work on HTML5.

We did within the past few weeks, noting the 3 August 2011 last call 
deadline, survey to see whether TAG members had new Last Call issues to 
raise, and the answer was that we did not as of then.  Thank you.

Noah

Another possibility would be the project on fragment identifiers, but with one caveat: the 31 December 2011 target for a TAG finding was set before Jeni Tennison was asked to focus more on the microdata/RDFa task force work, and I don't yet have commitments from TAG members to backfill on the same schedule. I expect the fragid work will get done, and done well, but perhaps a bit later than we originally thought. We will, of course, update that work plan and product page when and if we revise our schedule.
