Even if the HTML group doesn't take the WHATWG spec as a base and agree to 
have me as editor, I'm still going to be a member of the HTML group, and 
would still argue for what I think the spec should say, which would be 
based on all the input that I take into account when writing the WHATWG 
spec -- I wouldn't characterise that as pressuring the HTML group, though.

Does that make sense?
