XMLHttpRequest was in HTML5. I'd be quite happy to put it back. I'd also 
be happy to put HTTP and CSS in HTML5, if the relevant WGs are ok with 
that.

We'd probably have to rename HTML5 to "the Web specification", though, 
because XHR, HTTP, and CSS aren't adding features to HTML itself -- 
they're layers to the side of, below, and above (respectively) HTML. 
Microdata and RDFa, on the other hand, are actually part of HTML, and so 
should, IMHO, be in the HTML spec, if they exist at all.
