The WHATWG spec, at least, doesn't highlight implementation status based on the
HTML test suite.

I think this should be highlighted in the specification that mandates the
behaviors in question, which would seem to be the accessibility API mapping
document. This highlighting should be backed by a test suite.

Note that according to the (unofficial) test results liked by Cynthia, the main
offender here is now WebKit, and there is an open bug in the WebKit bugtracker
on which progress is being made:
