@wseltzer hm, so the above plan to ref HTML 5.2 will not work in all 
cases, because HTML 5.2 does not itself directly define/embody some 
things that we need to reference [1] -- eg `host parser` algorithm,  
domain (#concept-domain in URL), IPv4 address, IPv6 address -- rather,
 HTML 5.2 refers directly to https://url.spec.whatwg.org/
