Note that this is an issue that's going to come up for a number of WebAppSec specs (see https://w3c.github.io/webappsec/specs/powerfulfeatures/#issue-a30f61b8 <https://w3c.github.io/webappsec/specs/powerfulfeatures/#issue-a30f61b8>, for instance (and that spec also needs a few things that are missing from W3C's HTML, but are present in WHATWG's)). What I hear so far on this thread is that we should simply reference the WHATWG version of those specs, which seems like a reasonable thing to do.
