Status: Rejected
Change Description: actually ended up adding a reference
Rationale: 

I tried to do this, but I really couldn't find a way to do it that:

(a) didn't introduce tautologies (like "A cache host is an object that hosts a
cache" or something equally inane).

(b) didn't say anything technically wrong (like the proposed "A cache host is
the object that maintains an association to an ApplicationCache"  it's no the
case that all the objects that maintain an association to an ApplicationCache
are cache hosts).

(c) didn't make the text make no sense in complete.html (e.g. talking about
"other specifications" to mean another section in complete.html).

(d) didn't introduce gratuitous differences between WHATWG and W3C versions.

Web Workers and HTML5 really are just one spec, they're just split for W3C
process reasons. This becomes very visible when trying to make the relationship
one-way only like this.

While doing all this I found another place that referenced Web Workers from
HTML5, so I added another reference.

If anyone has any suggestion for how to do this, please feel free to suggest
what the text should be. I do see the argument that suggests that all the
worker-related appcache stuff should be in the workers section and the appcache
section should only talk about Documents, but I just can't really make it work
that well in practice.
