You will also have to add back things like <tab> and <link rev="made">, 
which are implemented and used (Lynx implements both; I think that some 
other browsers implement rev="made"), but have dropped out of the spec 
(<tab> was HTML 3.0, but rev=made is mainstream).  There are probably 
other things which have dropped out, but have been implemented.

In passing, it is not normal for standards to include prior versions, or 
even the complete specification, and there is a difference between a 
standard and an implementation.
