I can only answer for firefox (which might not be relevant then), but
no, we're not waiting for the spec to progress further in the W3C
process. We just need someone to find the time to through the spec,
test if we conform or not, and file bugs/attach patches.

A comprehensive test suite would of course be hugely helpful here.
Once we get time to do the above I'm certain that we'll be able to
contribute tests to such a test suite.
