Well, the extensions to the History object could be implemented  
separately. There has been some talk on the WHATWG mailing list already to  
extend the pushState() method in such a way that it would accept a second  
argument, an identifier, but a clear proposal for that that does not  
interfer with security et cetera has not yet been made.

(And lots of what is in those drafts is actually specifying what browsers  
have implemented already. There are new features as  well, but those are  
mostly based on existing implementations et cetera.)
