Please remember that items were marked at risk by the HTML WG NOT only because
the WG members thought they might need further implementations but ALSO because
someone might have been concerned about the interoperability of the
implementations of the feature.

For example, is there any evidence that the implementations you pointed to for
<output> actually follow the HTML 5 CR spec, and give the same results?

Note that the current document that summarizes the CR exit criteria for HTML5
lists <output> as needing testing.
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tests-cr-exit.html

So in summary I believe that <output> will remain on the "features at risk"
list until the HTML WG has concrete testing proof of at least two independent
and interoperable implementations.

PS:  I have not yet had time to double check the current HTML5 testsuite to
determine if <output> tests have been added since the CR exit criteria was
drafted in June.
