I think having a change list is good. There's a limit to how much  
detail is useful. The way HTML4 is written, it's often hard to tell  
what the conformance requirements are, so documenting every clearly  
stated conformance requirement that used to be an informative  
statement, undefined or unstated would probably be too much detail.

I'm hoping volunteers other than the spec editor can continue to  
improve and miantain the description of changes.
