Agreed with Hixie; the WHATWG spec is the most recent normative version of that section, and should be referenced instead. Remember, there's nothing wrong with reffing WHATWG specs. It will not delay or hamper your publication or Rec-track advancement, despite the occasional misinformed complaint from someone not aware of the policies. ~TJ
