Well, the problem is that some of the features you're proposing to be
'standards track' are for things that are not themselves standards
track. I think that's gotten us in trouble in the past.

A feature like 'can print color' can be standards track.
A feature like 'implements vendor-B version 2.0 variation of tables'
shouldn't be standards track if vendor-B's version 2.0 variation of
tables isn't.
