Sorry for replying in a very formalistic way......

This is the W3C. We are pursuing the goal of getting a good 
specification together; we don't believe we have one at the moment, 
that's why we're changing it.
The Chrome and Firefox team have committed to following this 
specification; they're part of the WG.

The WHATWG has not done anything to this part of the spec for several 
months. It's not the business of this WG to tell the WHATWG what to do 
(where their options include deleting the section, replacing the section 
with a pointer to our spec, or do something entirely different).

I believe that resolving confusion requires running code.
