For issues that are closed without prejudice because they time out in  
this way, here's the situation. The formal rule is that the issue can  
only be re-raised with permission of the chairs. Informally, we will  
allow these kinds of issues to be re-raised if someone comes forward  
with a completed Change Proposal. The Chairs will also grant  
reasonable deadline extensions where there is a volunteer identified,  
and if Paul needs one it will very likely be granted.

I'm assuming based on TPAC discussion that the TAG has no further  
interest in keeping these issues open as Last Call blockers, but I'd  
be happy to give the TAG a heads-up in case they feel otherwise.

The predefined vocabularies are already removed. Please check <http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/

vocabulary specs are here:


Because the split has been done for some time with no apparent  
controversy, we're proposing closing the issue.

Working Group members are welcome and encouraged to verify the  
correctness of the split.
