The idea is to advance to Candidate Recommendation (which is possible) and  
then await implementations. Once we have two interoperable implementations  
and HTML5 has not yet matured enough we'll revisit this issue and either  
decide to wait for HTML5 or make several parts of the specification  
informative (implementation defined, effectively) in order to reach  
Recommendation without having the HTML5 dependency.
