Subject: CFC: Request to move HTML5.1 to Candidate Recommendation (CR)

Hello WP,

This is a call for consensus to request that W3C publish the current HTML 
Working Draft (WD) as a Candidate Recommendation (CR). It has been posted to 
public-webapps@w3.org as the official email for this WG.

Please reply to this thread on public-webapps@w3.org  no later than end of day 
on 10 June. Positive responses are preferred and encouraged, silence will be 
considered as assent.

The current HTML5.1 WD [1] improves upon HTML5. It includes updates that make 
it more reliable, more readable and understandable, and a better match for 
reality. Substantial changes between HTML5 and HTML5.1 can be found in the spec 

When a specification moves to CR it triggers a Call For Exclusions, per section 
4 of the W3C Patent Policy [3]. No substantive additions can be made to a 
specification in CR without starting a new Call for Exclusions, so we will put 
HTML5.1 into "feature freeze". It is possible to make editorial updates as 
necessary, and features marked "At Risk" may be removed if found not to be 

The following features are considered "at risk". If we cannot identify at least 
two shipping implementations, they will be marked "at risk" in the CR and may 
be removed from the Proposed Recommendation.

keygen element. [issue 43]
label as a reassociatable element [issue 109] Fixing requestAnimationFrame to 
60Hz, not implementation-defined [issues 159/375/422] registerContentHandler 
[Issue 233] inputmode attribute of the input element [issue 269] autofill of 
form elements [issue 372] menu, menuitem and context menus. [issue 373] dialog 
element [issue 427] Text tracks exposing in-band metadata best practices [Issue 
461] datetime and datatime-local states of the input element [Issue 462]

Please share implementation details for any of these features on Github. To 
mark other features "at risk", please identify them by 10th June (ideally by 
filing an issue and providing a test case).

At the same time we move HTML5.1 into CR, we plan to continue updating the 
Editor's Draft, and in the next few weeks we expect to post a Call for 
Consensus to publish it as the First Public Working Draft of HTML5.2, so 
improving HTML will continue without a pause. It also means that changes that 
didn't make it into
HTML5.1 will not have long to wait before being incorporated into the
