New features can still be added freely to the WHATWG's draft of HTML,
which will presumably be the basis of HTML6 when it arrives, and which
implementers can refer to in the meantime.  You can post to or file a bug against HTML5 to get on Ian's
list.  I assume that the W3C will want to start publishing HTML6
sooner rather than later, too, because otherwise implementers will be
forced to refer to the WHATWG copy exclusively if they intend to
implement any new features beyond HTML5 (which they will).
