Well, you e-mailed the WHATWG list, so I guess the answer should be "the 
WHATWG spec". :-) I suspect the W3C would disagree, of course.

On the other hand, the W3C spec is over a year old at this point 
(according to the W3C's spec's history section, they forked from the 
WHATWG version around August 2013). It has many known issues that haven't 
been resolved, but that are fixed in the WHATWG version. So I would 
recommend ignoring it in general, unrelated to the <main> element 
definition differences.
