FYI, I have now filed 4 bugs against Polyglot Markup, to address some 
of the issues that the XML/HTML TF discussed:

A) Formally define polyglot’s relationship to HTML5
   ("applicable spec")
   https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=20197

B) Formally define that polyglot can be extended
   https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=20198

C) HTML parser in toolchain vs polyglot: 
   Say that such an HTML parser may produce polyglots
   https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=20199

D) polyglot markup and extensions via <script> (and <style>)
   https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=20201
