Looking at <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=588781#c21>, 
the fix will go into Firefox 5, which is planned to be 3 months behind 
Firefox 4.

Optimally, this would be ~July 2011.

On the other hand, to get to RFC we need

- to do the IETF LC -> two weeks
- get it through the IESG (I expect at least minimally one revision to 
be requested) -> ~ two months

Once it's in the RFC publication queue, it'll take at least another six 
weeks... Which would be around the same time.

Still, I'm very uncomfortable recommending something we're not sure will 
work when the RFC is published.

Related to this; I just updated the notes with respect to the 
filename*/filename fallback behavior; see 

Best regards, Julian
