For the sake of accuracy in marketing and in order to avoid author  
confusion, a document that banned stuff that is conforming per spec  
should not be marketed as author-readable reference material for HTML5  
but should instead be marketed as a specification for a subset profile  
of HTML5.

Even though it is not my decision, I'd prefer this WG put its author  
outreach effort into producing author-readable material about the  
HTML5 language proper instead of a profile.
