I think splitting up the spec and (mostly) reassembling it isn't a  
productive way of working, so I am opposed to your proposal. (And I  
support adopting WHATWG's HTML5 wholesale as a *starting point*.)

Do you have specific parts of the spec that you'd like to reject? Why  
would you like to reject them?

I am opposed to certain details of the Web Apps 1.0 draft myself, but  
I trust that Hixie will properly consider my feedback--and yours also.
