I think my suggestion to define the relevant requirements would be just as
effective at leading to interoperable implementations. If someone is
implementing both Workers and AppCache, they need to read both specs. And
one-way references tend to be easier to understand (in this implementor's
experience) than circular references, when dealing with the interactions
between multiple specs. In fact, different details of the integration points
are in each of the two specs, which I think is overall more confusing.

SVG is not analogous; there aren't references from SVG to HTML, so we don't
have a reference cycle. It would actually be worse if the specs mutually
cross-referenced each other.

Anyway, this is just my opinion. If you don't buy it, feel free to WONTFIX
