Again, if a corporation is trying to implement a subset of the web
platform that won't actually run the web, I'm completely uninterested
in helping them do so (as, I suspect, is every other browser
implementor on this list).  We should not be encouraging this sort of
behavior, and I won't waste my time on it.  They can invent their own
proprietary APIs, rather than burdening the entire web with things
that can be solved better with other existing web technologies.

If you meant something else by your comment, could you clarify?
