That's not the point, Henri.  The point is to have a guide to the Web Apps 1.0 specifications, as the 696 pages are a bit much to internalize all at once; it is useful to have a delta guide to understand what is different between HTML 4.01 and the WHATWG's HTML5.  This is the spec we are to publish.

 From the charter:
"A language evolved from HTML4 for describing the semantics of
documents and applications on the World Wide Web. This will be a
complete specification, not a delta specification."

That wouldn't be a useful use of Hixie's time.
