Since the disposition of comments isn't even read by anyone these days [1] 
it isn't clear to me that the disposition of comments is worth doing at 
all, let alone in HTML, especially given how much more work maintaining 
the document as an HTML file would be compared to maintaining a simple 
text file.

[1] See, e.g. SVG 1.2's disposition of comments, where the "Director's 
Responses" were actually written by the same person who chaired the group 
in question, and which was never even looked at by the Director before the 
specification went to CR.
