When I said "safely apply it" I meant that it will not end up in our
spec, because it's in an area of the "source" file that is not
included into the HTML5 spec. Apologies for being imprecise.

I don't think we need that, since the WHATWG is keeping that list
up-to-date. We have instead a document for listing the differences to
HTML4, which Simon is updating - and doing a great job if I may say
so. I think that's sufficient.
