[Bug 13423] Remove the Editing APIs section. It's extremely incomplete and contradicts my editing spec on a lot of points, so it will confuse implementers.

Does it make sense to pull a section from a Rec track document that has already
entered into Last Call, and then pull it into the incubator group? A group that
isn't covered by patent policy and doesn't necessarily guarantee the item will
end up on the Rec track?

I feel we've taken two steps back.

There needs to be a clear understanding of what this move means, because
frankly, it has more than a whiff of "amateur hour"--people stumbling about,
not understanding what it means for a document to be in Last Call, and not
understanding how this new incubator group co-exists with the W3C's more
formalized effort. 

As has been noted, I'm not a member of the HTML WG, but I'm very concerned that
the HTML5 document is not LC quality and the move to LC was a political one,
not one based on sound technical principals. The effort associated with the
editing section of the document only justifies this concern.

Until this confusion about the incubator group and pulling in a section from a
LC document is resolved (not glossed over), I continue my objection to removing
this section from the HTML5 document. I really do think we in the web community
have a right to insist that the W3C, generally, and the HTML WG specifically,
ensure a more professional approach is taken regarding the HTML5 document from
this point in.

(Just an opinion, but Aryeh, I think you need to have a chat with Google about
your work with the W3C, because you seem to be confused about Google's
relationship with the W3C and how it impacts on your work. Normally I wouldn't
care, but yanking this section out of the HTML5 document is disruptive to the
broader web community.)
