I agree with this change.

I'll have to think about this one. It does seem like a feature addition, and it's late in the game for that. It's not totally clear to me that responseXML is the best way to expose parsing of HTML documents, since there is no way to feature test for it. CR is probably too late to be adding features, especially when it's not 100% clear it is the right design.

Agree, assuming there is no Web compatibility issue.

How do implementations currently behave in this case?

I'm not sure what the current proposal is here. I don't think a scheme whitelist is right.

Seems ok to me, if there is no compatibility issue.

As such I propose we have a Call for Consensus for each of the bugs above a couple of days from now when people have had a change to take initial look. Bugs with comments indicating that my solution may not be correct should be excluded from the Call for Consensus until the concerns are addressed in some way.

As well as maintaining a test suite and tracking implementation conformance to that test suite. Then once we have two implementations that are conforming we can have another Last Call and hopefully move straight to Proposed Recommendation as we have proven that it can be implemented in interoperable fashion. (The security considerations document will have to be done as well by then, of course.)

Which of the changes above would require us to drop back to Working Draft and have another Last Call? Any of them, or just a subset?

If we do have another Last Call, I would prefer to go to CR again and not short-circuit the process. I place more value on careful process than on getting to REC quickly.
