The WHATWG spec is just called "HTML", "Living Standard" is what it is. As
we've gone through half a dozen names already for this spec (XForms Basic,
Web Forms 2.0, Web Applications 1.0, HTML 5, HTML5, Web Applications 1.0
again, and now HTML), I don't intend to change it again, but who knows. :-)
As of the last time the W3C equivalent spec was updated, it was titled
"HTML5", but you'd have to ask the W3C what their plans are.
