In case you're wondering, I've been trying to resolve several of the
concerns raised against the proposed HTML Charter. All, but one, are
related to the proposed permissive copyright experiment [1] (also known
as "the HTML experiment"). Among those, one indicated that the proposed
license was not enough to address all the use cases and would rather
have CC0 than CC-BY, due to the differences between CC-BY and GPL.
Others aren't clear about the benefits of the experiment, the set of
specifications impacted, or the brand and IPR implications. I no longer
expect to resolve all of those concerns and reach consensus. The same
applies to the concern related to content protection by the way. The W3C
Director is likely to issue a decision within 3 or 4 weeks to give
himself the ability to consult with the parties involved before then.
