I think you already have those two other voices.

FWIW, I agree that warnings about controversial passages of the draft  
- areas "at risk" - should be included in a published draft. They may  
turn out to be very valuable for early adopters of HTML5. For people  
whom development time comes at a premium, it may be important to  
avoid areas of HTML5 which are very likely to change before final  
publication. Conversely, those who have a lot of development time on  
their hands could even be encouraged to experiment in the more "at  
risk" parts of HTML5, so that they can feedback their experience to  
this group.

I've not spent enough time reading Manu's edition of the HTML5 draft  
to decide whether the particular parts he's highlighted are the best  
parts to mark "at risk" (and perhaps even getting consensus on this  
list of parts to highlight could be daunting) but I certainly agree  
that in principle such parts should be noted.
