Conflicts between W3C specs and ES5?

At the recent joint W3C / EcmaScript committee meeting, it was stated
that the only known conflicts between HTML5 and related specs vs.
EcmaScript 5 are
  1) Is the global object the same as the object at the end of the
scope chain? (HTML5: yes. ES5: no).
  2) What is document.all? (HTML5: a falsy host object. ES5: All
objects (i.e., all non-primitive values) including all host objects
are truthy.)

Just now, by chance, I came across
<http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/Web_ECMAScript> which enumerates other
alleged conflicts. What is the status of that page?
