Strictly speaking No. However, I think it is a useful data point when 
evaluating a proposal, especially since a spec cannot advance to 
Recommendation without two or more implementations. OTOH, I also think 
we need to be flexible enough to accommodate a new feature proposal 
where there is lots of interest in fleshing out the details yet the 
details are still too vague for someone to make an implementation 
commitment.
