Sure, but what WG is responsible for maintaining these RFCs, dealing with
implementation feedback, etc?

Time, probably. Possibly you could accelerate it by giving them a good business
reason to prioritise it (e.g. have some major site use it and break without it,
or pay them large amounts of money).

I don't see any way we can influence the priority that a browser vendors gives
a feature. On the contrary, with HTML5 it is the browser vendors who tell _me_
what the next priority item is, not vice versa.
