There will be a >very< small list of "guiding" references, and those have not been totally solidified.  There will also be references that appear (as necessary) in the course of our work, and these should be "references." (I don't know if the use of "normative reference" even applies to an IG.)

From what I see all examples so far as references, and probably not first-class items in the vision.

+1 to striking that. We should evaluate each reference and determine
+whether it advances our work. There may be
different reasons to choose a reference (e.g., we might want to refer to a widely accepted de jure standard in one place, or an emerging specification from a de facto group that clearly has broad adoption in another).

I would think of “Recognized by W3C” as something demonstrated after we create a reference rather than something a priori that constrains how we choose references.
