What about indicating to the WG the existence of theses sources and
let him react ? We don't own the spec, but "This group will maintain
and produce incremental revisions to the HTML specification"
(http://www.w3.org/2007/03/HTML-WG-charter.html#scope), not "This
group will help the editor maintain...".

So as an editor, you have to take your material from the group. As a
group member, you have to indicate any intersting ressource.
