Maybe in general, but there's at least one thing the HTML WG could do IMO: 
they could refer to [1] in all cases as the primary specification for 
writing HTML, and they should refer to [2] as the specification for 
building user agents, and BTW for understanding what those user agents 
will/should do with buggy "legacy" content. If for any reason [1] is 
inadequate for the purpose (and I'm not saying it is), then it should 
improved accordingly.

If the HTML WG took that small step of emphasizing use of [1] as the 
correct reference for authors, I think it would have a significant 
beneficial effect.
