           Summary: registration procedure for meta/@name values
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec bugs
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org
        ReportedBy: julian.reschke@gmx.de

The spec currently points to <http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/MetaExtensions> for
the registration procedure. That's a problem in itself, as the registration
procedure should be part of the spec and not a moving target (which I think a
Wiki entry is).

The wiki page itself says:

"Process

For the "Status" section to be changed to "Accepted", the proposed keyword must
be defined by a W3C specification in the Candidate Recommendation or
Recommendation state. If it fails to go through this process, it is
"Unendorsed".

..." 

This text should be part of the HTML5 spec. Whether a Wiki is a good registry,
and whether the registration requirements themselves make sense are orthogonal
issues.
