No, those are not the right questions anymore.

Just to review, HTML 3.0 is not a concept we are currently working on. IETF
practice is to work on documents which are MUCH smaller in scope than the
HTML 3.0 draft. That draft has been, and is being, carved into smaller,
much more manageable pieces, and the HTML 3.0 draft itself should expire

People seem enamored with version numbers, so we may decide to choose a few
key items and call them 2.1, or 2.2, or whatever. There seems to be some
controversy on that.

Yes, HTML 2.0 is 'done', and discussion of changes to the 2.0 draft, either
on this list, or at the Stockholm meeting, is considered out of order.
