For the record, the HTML WG is not involved in the publication of any version of XBL and there are no plans for the HTML WG to do so at this time. It remains a Web Apps WG deliverable, and no one has suggested moving it over. The design of HTML5 does allow for separate specifications to extend it, and we are happy to have such specifications developed by other W3C Working Groups where appropriate, and with sufficient coordination and cross-review.

Also, while it is true that HTML5 is our primary charter deliverable, our name is spelled "HTML WG", not "HTML5 WG".
