As per Sam's request, this e-mail is a report of the status of issues on 
the agenda that have actions due before 2009-04-31 (11 days from now), 
from the persective of the spec.

ISSUE-59 (normative-language-reference): Should the HTML WG produce a 
separate document that is a normative language reference and if so what 
are the requirements

   The HTML5 specification, with its alternative style sheet for hiding 
   implementation requirements, is scheduled for publication this week.

ISSUE-56 (urls-webarch): Assess whether "URLs" section/definition 
conflicts with Web architecture

   I am waiting for DanC's draft to reach a standards track (either at the 
   W3C or the IETF) before removing the relevant part of the HTML5 spec 
   (so that I have something to reference).

ISSUE-41 (Decentralized-extensibility): Decentralized extensibility

   I am currently going through the feedback relating to micro-data 
   features that resulted from the call for feedback earlier this year, 
   and expect to have collated these use cases, evaluated possible 
   solutions, and written a draft proposal for adopting such a solution by 
   the end of the month.

ISSUE-54 (doctype-legacy-compat): tools that can't generate <!DOCTYPE 

ISSUE-4 (html-versioning): HTML Versioning and DOCTYPEs

ISSUE-32 (table-summary): how to provide a summary of a table, e.g. for 
unsighted navigation?

ISSUE-55 (head-profile): head/@profile missing, but used in other 

ISSUE-60 (html5-xhtml-namespace): Reuse of 1999 XHTML namespace is 
potentially misleading/wrong

   It's not clear to me what needs changing in the spec for these issues.
