I pass over much of Ian's message, and address one point only :

Ian Hickson wrote:

The HTML WG agreed to adopt the WHAT WG /as a starting point for
future discussion/.  The omission of these words in Ian's message,
and the ?deliberate? addition of the word "wholesale"  could easily
lead the naive reader to believe that this group had agreed to adopt
the WHAT WG draft unconditionally.  We have not.
