Erm, you seem to confuse what's called HTML 5 with what is being worked 
on at the W3C. HTML 5 is the WHAT WG workgroup's result (and it is in 
development for quite a while now, so I won't call it rushed like Anton 

   Recommendation     | Group
   HTML 4, XHTML 1.x  | W3C
   HTML 5, XHTML 5(!) | WHAT WG

Now the W3C is working on improving HTML 4 too, and Microsoft joined 
*that* Group. What will be the name of that version is not yet known 
(they are not working on the specs yet).
