What is the reasoning behind this change?
I don't think that this is actually helpful, because users have to
register a bug against either the spec that we are taking to REC or
HTML.next. Since the spec that we are taking to REC is HTML 5.0, I
would prefer we keep this component as "HTML5" - it is far less
confusing. Alternatively, "HTML5-CR" or "HTML5-LC" or "HTML5.0" would
make sense to me, too.
