FWIW I would prefer not to have an "conformant with warnings" level of 
conformance but I can accept it if it helps us make progress with the 
spec. I would request the additional change that the spec include a 
description of the purpose of features that generate warnings e.g.

"The summary attribute on table elements was used in older versions of 
HTML for authors to provide a description of the structure of complex 
tables. Authors should not use this attribute in HTML 5 documents but 
should instead use the caption element or one of the other techniques 
described in the table section to provide this information."
