5.1 is not stable though. It is based on scripts which try to copy from whatwg/html, but they are not very smart and several sections have become nonsensical because of this. It doesn't seem suitable as a reference by serious specs.

not saying there aren't other examples that would be concrete.

I am pleasantly surprised!

I assume this means that I ought to be reference HTML 5.1 and not 5 in whatever snapshots WebAppSec produces?
