I'm personally worried about progressing specs prematurely based on unreleased products. We had this happen with Widgets: lots of user agents that passed the test suite but nothing that had any market impact as none of those runtimes became real products. **I'm not saying that Tizen won't have a market impact** - just that we should not take things to Recommendation until products are in the hands of a significant set of developers and users. Making things "Rec" just because we can doesn't mean we should.
