The best bet is that WHATWG draft will be shaped into the next  
iteration of HTML even from the W3C point of view.

Actually, it isn't at all clear if this list is the right place for  
anything in particular anymore.

As late as February, this list was the public feedback list for the  
XHTML 2.0 WG when the main list of the XHTML 2.0 WG was secret. It  
isn't clear how the work of the XHTML 2.0 WG moving to a publicly  
visible list changes this.

For HTML5, assuming that the new HTML WG accepts the WHATWG draft as  
the starting point, the public list for those who have jumped through  
the patent policy hoops will be public-html. For those who haven't  
jumped through the patent policy hoops, the WHATWG list is already  
established instead of this one. After all, the new HTML WG had  
existed for about a month, IIRC, until it occurred to anyone to  
announce it here. It was announced immediately upon decloaking on the  
WHATWG list.
