The most useful thing from an authoring standpoint would be going through the spec and finding bits that don't make sense. Start with the authoring view:

http://whatwg.org/html?style=author

Then use the widget at the bottom right (it says "Click the location of the error to select it, then type your message here:") to submit review comments on the spec. The best review comments are those along the lines of questions you couldn't find the answer to. For example, say you wanted to find out what elements you could put in a <p> element, and you couldn't work it out. Then you would file a bug "I couldn't find the answer to the question 'What elements are allowed inside <p> elements'.".
