I think the HTML5 project is misguided in the same way that ES4 was. It is trying to do too much without a clear mission that defines the problems it is solving. I think the project needs a reset. I want to refocus it with the intention of producing the smallest possible standard, rather than the largest possible standard.
I would call the replacement project HTML4.2. It would be tempting to call it HTML4.1, but the current HTML standard is HTML 4.01, so the potential for confusion is too great.
Opinionated Doug is opinionated, and I think it's a good thing.
