I don't see any reason to rush with removing it from the draft until it's in another spec. Opera is interested in implementing it so we'd rather have it specced somewhere than not specced.

Also, having it included in the WHATWG version but not in the W3C version could only lead to confusion, so I don't see that as desirable either.
