Only once I have clear answers to the following (and see actual proof). I
know you already addressed some of this in your previous email to Dominic.

1. How will the spec be kept up to date? i.e., what technical means will be
put in place by the w3c to assure that the latest is always on TR.

2. How will the W3C determine when a spec is ready for LC/CR?

3. How will the W3C cope with changes occurring to the living document
after CR? (See Boris' emails)

4. Will the W3C prevent search engines from finding the copy/pasted
document? Particularly any static snapshots.

5. What indicators (e.g., the big red box) will be put into the spec to
indicate that the WHATWG version is the canonical version?

6. Out of respect for both the Editor and the WHATWG as a standards
consortium, how will the W3C attribute authorship of the documents and well
as show that the document originates from the WHATWG?

(Ps: Your claim about 12 step programs have been debunked by science. See
[1] :))
