            Bug ID: 22837
           Summary: Media Queries reference should be made to the W3C
                    Recommendation
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec

In 2.2.2 Dependencies, the following requirement is made: “Implementations must
support the Media Queries language. [MQ]” This is a somewhat odd requirement.
Media Queries would more appropriately be called part of CSS rather than a
language, and there is no logical reason why HTML5 spec should impose such a
requirement – the level of CSS support should really not be a conformance
criterion when discussing HTML5 conformance.

But if the requirement is there, I think it should refer the W3C Recommendation
“Media Queries”, http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-mediaqueries/, a stable document
dated 19 June 2012, rather than the editor’s draft for “Media Queries Level 3”,
http://w3c-test.org/csswg/mediaqueries3/, dated 13 April 2012, which says:
“Don't cite this document other than as work in progress.” It seems that the
latter has lost significance, and readers of the HTML5 spec should not be
confused by referring to it.
