Philippe Le Hegaret, a World Wide Web Consortium domain leader says it's too early for browsers to be settling on unconfirmed HTML5-related specification drafts and it's too early for websites to be using the drafts to build their websites.  Of course, this position hasn't been widely heard over the roar of Google, Apple, Microsoft, and the developers who want a modern, open, and vendor-free web platform.  Le Hegaret says the W3C hopes to have a feature-complete spec by mid-2011, but HTML5 won't be final for many years.  Web developers suggest that you simply build fallbacks and just deal with any API changes.
