A recent example from Canvas specification.
http://html5.org/tools/web-apps-tracker?from=7030&to=7031

    <p class="note">This specification does not define the precise
    +  algorithm to use when scaling an image when the <code
    +  title="dom-context-2d-imageSmoothingEnabled">imageSmoothingEnabled</code>
    +  attribute is set to true.</p>

It all depends on what you mean by interoperability and the expectations of users. I'm pretty sure that graphics designers will have a very strong opinion about smoothing being exactly the same for all browsers.
