I'm not arguing that it should be in scope (I really don't think it should) - I *am* arguing we need to do *something* for interoperability otherwise I don't know why we are here.

I expect something like might be be done with a browser extension, or perhaps a plist per taxonomy similar to a user style sheet, and therefore make it extensible so that third-party tools could augment the default preferences served by a mainstream browser. 

The specifics of how this would work however, are probably implementation details that are outside the scope of the spec.
