The main problem I have with them is that they have typically not gone 
through the sort of full QA cycle that would point out possible problems 
in the implementation of the "bad interaction with other specs or 
deployed content" kind.  One would hope that such issues were caught 
during spec writing, but I think this is an important sanity-check.

Of course in this view not all implementations are equal (e.g. a 
walled-garden implementation wouldn't have the same compatibility 
constraints as web-facing one)...  Not sure that others see this 
requirement in the same light as I do.
