I too would also like to see this resolved by an official policy statement from
(at least) the HTMLWG chairs, if not the W3C themselves.

Why?  Because I find it offensive that the W3C would allow a normative
reference (and requirements!) in a standard to a document that has been
authored by a pseudonymous author (and is freely available) _BUT_ will not
accept normative references to documents developed by internationally
recognized standards bodies, that just happen to be behind "pay walls".
