We'd have a similar view related to the TCD implementation, we can 
accommodate the change in <script> if there is consensus on this 
approach being needed in the spec.

So likely more changes, especially for tools creating or updating data categories with standoff notations.
Agreed, that would be my assumption.

+1, and we are able to continue support for the test suite if needed. It 
would be good to get some additional 'native' HTML implementers to 
verify against any new tests that the CDATA approach really does work 
for them.

But I want everyone to fully understand the impact of such a decision: every single library, every single app, every single editor, every single filter will have to implement HTML-flavor-based switches for parsing, manipulation and serialization of inline ITS rules in HTML, and the DOM of ITS rules inside an html5 document will depend on the serialization of the document. Sorry, but urgghhh, to say exactly what I think of it...
