There are now bugs, including some that I've filed, that are over two
months old. The only action taken on them was their priority was
demoted, from the standard P2 to P3. Why they were demoted is unknown
-- it was a seemingly arbitrary move.

The HTML5 specification cannot progress with unaddressed bugs. If the
sole HTML5 author has too much work, this group needs to consider
opening the specification to other editors.

Regardless, we need to consider a process where bugs that are left
beyond a certain point either have their priority moved up, or are
converted to issues so that the entire group can provide a solution to
the bug. I actually favor the latter -- if the bugs are too complex to
handle simply, with edits, then they should be resolved by the group.
