As per Sam's request, this e-mail is a report of the status of issues on 
the agenda that have actions due before 2009-03-27 (11 days from now), 
from the persective of the spec.


ISSUE-31 (missing-alt): What to do when a reasonable text equivalent is 
unknown/unavailable?

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

ISSUE-20 (table-headers): Improvements to the table-headers algorithm in 
the HTML 5 spec

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

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

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-13 (handling-http-401-status): Handling HTTP status 401 responses / 
User Agent Authentication Forms

   It's not clear to me what needs changing in the spec for these issues. 
   As far as I am aware all feedback has been taken into account. I am not 
   aware of any proposals that address any more of the use cases detailed 
   for these issues than the current text in the spec without causing 
   more harm than the spec as it stands today.


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

   This is pending work by DanC to split the controversial part out into 
   an I-D for RFC standards track.


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

   I am working on autogenerating such a document from the spec. I'm 
   about 63% done.


ISSUE-63 (origin-req-scope): Origin header: in scope? required for this 
release?

   This is pending work by Adam Barth to create an I-D for RFC standards 
   track that defines what HTML5 has to do.


I hope to be done with the author-targetted version of the spec soon, at 
which point I will return to trying to clear the backlog of e-mail and 
bugs on track for a last call in October.
