Re: HTML-XML TF telcon Cancelled 23 August 2011

Also, slightly contradicting myself: I note the TAG is meeting 13-15 Sept. 
If you feel it's ready, I think we should put the draft on the reading

XML5/scope question, but pointing a direction or at least outlining 
positions being debated would be helpful I think.  Thanks.
