Hi Leif,

I don't understand why a duplicate spec is needed at WHATWG.
Eliminating the WHATWG version would:

* Remove all possibility of errors in differences.
* Eradicate the need to provide comments on differences; there would
be no differences.
* Provide efficiency in abolishing double maintenance.
* Provide the public clarification of which document is authoritative.
* Facilitate the convergence of the two groups as called for in our charter.

Best Regards,
Laura L. Carlson
