The WebKit project has implementations all the cited specs. However,  
many of them are still in progress and not 100% feature complete. Some  
have not shipped in a non-beta product yet. Overall we are still at  
the point where we are discovering new issues in the course of  
implementation. I estimate that within 4-6 months we will have feature- 
complete versions of all the specs implemented and in most cases  
shipping in at least one of Safari or Chrome.

Maciej
