I also listened to the interview: "Ric Smith on the Present and the Future of HTML 5"; where they mentioned the following HTML5 specifications:

John Resig: Cross-Window Messaging,

Web socket: a standard answer to send messages from the server to the web browser. This feature will help to replace Comet.
Kaazing: HTML 5 WebSockets

Please find here below a video, where Brad gives a broader utilisation of HTML5.
