I have wirtten a blog post detailing the differences between the normative
accessibility requirements and advice in the HTML5 spec  and HTML living
The details and ensuing discussion you may find interesting.

HTML is currently defined in multiple documents, each purporting to be
*THE*definition of HTML/HTML5. The documents are developed, published
and maintained by 2 separate organisations. The 2 organisations have
development models, one (W3C) employs a consensus
resolving conflicts about the normative and informative content of the
HTML specification, in the other (WHATWG) all decisions about what is in the
specification are made by one
editor, Ian Hickson).
