Although I'm not on the list to which the new HTML discussion was moved, 
my impression from what has leaked onto www-html is that the HTML5 
policy is very market wants and vendor driven and that the only 
accessibility features that survive are those that are already 
consistently implemented across browsers.

HTML5 is basically driven by the vendors, not by W3C.

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
