That's why I dropped the decimals altogether. :)

The other FPIs are combining two independent packages, so to speak.
Web Forms extends HTML4, though, it doesn't just add on a new module.
That's why I'd choose "with" over "plus" for that combination.

I think I'm deciding on

   "-//WHATWG//DTD HTML 5.0 Core + Web Forms//EN"

(with revision markers as appropriate). Assuming Hixie doesn't object. :)
