What has become of the "author-only view of the 'main spec'" in the
recent split of the HTML spec into multiple components? Which is
the "main spec"?

Since the spec is now split across multiple documents, where is
the author-only view and who has made the commitment to maintain it
and improve its quality?

There has been no objection by the extended deadline, and the TAG  
seems satisfied with our course of action, while reserving the right  
to raise further objections depending on how things go. Therefore,  
closing this.
