I agree. Without it, we could end up in a situation where there are two  
development builds passing the testsuite, so the spec exits CR, and during  
the beta phase the implementors find that something needs to change for  
Web compat.

I think we should maybe even require the implementations to have been  
shipping for some amount of time, since some issues aren't found until the  
implementation is used on a wide scale.
