Feedback from James and others resulted in the WHATWG creating a version 
of the spec that has all the previously split-out bits (except XHR, the 
Selectors API, and the Web SQL Database spec) in one document:

   http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/complete.html

At this point that is the document I use pretty much exclusively when 
dealing with these specs, as it is far more convenient than the previously 
split-out versions.
