As I mentioned  on a TAG call yesterday, I thought the TAG might address the more general concerns around what makes a specification "normative" and what it is being a "recommendation" applies, since I think there are a number of disagreements about these fundamentals which, if we could resolve, might help with the debate.

It would be useful to review the arguments in https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=19923 including the bug as submitted by Henri and the subsequent arguments in the HTML mailing list.

I had taken the task of gathering together background reading for the TAG, but it's difficult to extract the technical issues in the mail thread from the long discussions of working group process. 

I think it would be good to include the editor of the draft in discussions about it.
