Convergence is not helped by maintaining separate and NOT equal versions of
HTML5 at a web site that is basically a personal web site, run by a single
individual, who has a demonstrated tendency to ignore more or less the will of
everyone if he's in a mood.

Most definitely am pushing this one through as a Tracker Request. Hopefully
there will be _someone_ in the W3C cognizant of the problems that will arise by
linking to a personal web site with material that conflicts with the W3C
material. And that isn't stable.
