Got it.  This is really not an acceptable outcome.  Disabling parts of the released, widely used, parts of web standard is not going to lead to this technology being accepted and used in widespread manner.  At this point, we would have been better off dedicating our development effort towards supporting these features in a native app.  We naively thought basing out solution on web technologies would lead to a more widely available solution. 

Added a WebKit bug here, for reference
