Two subtle additions:

1) "may make it" still requires agreement of the HTML WG

2) some extension specs may choose to proceed independently indefinitely

Hopefully implementation experience will make it easier to get agreement 
of the HTML WG, and hopefully many of the new feature proposals in the 
5.1 and 5.2 time frames will start out as extension specs.
