I very much like what you say in this document! However, - and please 
understand I don't want to start a "partisan" type flame war - it does 
seem like the proposed feature split _could_ make it a bit difficult 
(for various stakeholders) to clearly understand "so, what exactly is 
the `canonical` version of features X/Y/Z - HTMLWG or WHATWG version?", 
although I suppose one could argue moving toward the proposed model 
wouldn't necessarily make things any more complicated than they are today.

Anyhow, thanks for proposal! It seems like this could be a good general 
topic to discuss at TPAC, probably during one of the Wednesday sessions 
(given this is relevant to the proposed Web @ 2014 session perhaps it 
could be included in that session ^1).
