[widgets] HTML5 dependency blocking Widget Interface Proposed Recommendation

Hi All,

As I understand it, the W3C's publication precedence re normative 
references for a Proposed Recommendation, is that all W3C normative 
references must be at CR or a later maturity level.

With today's publication of a CR of Web IDL [WebIDL-CR], the only W3C 
normative reference in the Widget Interface Candidate Recommendation 
[TWI-CR] that is not at CR or later is HTML5.

Philippe, Ian - my understanding is that if the WG can show its uses of 
HTML5 are restricted to stable parts of the HTML5 spec, the Director 
will relax this publication precedence i.e. the Widget Interface may be 
published as a Proposed Recommendation. Is this correct?

Marcos - would you please enumerate the CR's uses of HTML5 and state 
whether each usage is to a stable part of HTML5?

-Thanks, AB
