We can publish a document with only the feature you think are mature to be published depending on the criteria the group has fixed. It is exactly the W3C Process with CR. 

The issue is rarely the process or the document, but the human resources needed to make the tests, the implementation reports which demonstrate interoperability for a set of features.

As an example, some of the specifications of Web semantics area were TDD. The specs had been written from the tests
