There are a couple of problems with what it says currently:

(a) There is no way defined to parse the list of acceptable names from the
Wiki.
(b) Anyone anywhere could, at any time, blank the wiki page and hey presto a
very large percentage of all HTML 5 documents in the world are suddenly
invalid.
(c) It makes the W3C HTML standard dependent on an anonymous third-party
website.

(a) in particular is surely a show-stopper.

I suggest that the list should be hosted on the w3c.org site, and should be in
a computer-readable format. This list can then, behind the scenes, be
automatically scraped from the Wiki if that's what you want to happen (and it
could do things like alert someone at the W3C if the list suddenly changes
significantly). You could also say that conformance checkers should pay
attention to the HTTP Expires header when fetching the list, as an indication
as to how long to cache the list for.
