Yes, I wondered at that.

Politics aside, this is the W3C version of the document. By including parallel
references, we're not only adding redundancy, and not particularly helpful
redundancy, we're generating a level of confusion about where what is the
definitive W3C material.

And, the W3C has no control over what happens to the WhatWG servers. Or
content. That's not necessarily a problem with a ack section link, but it is
when you have references to material such as a FAQ, which supposedly is
supposed to answer questions about the W3C document; or to source code control,
which contains material that isn't the same as the W3C material.
