A few days ago Doug asked me to redesign the standardization status ribbon, because it was misleading and too obtrusive.
A very good point he made was that we should indicate what each status means, not just the name. For example, many people don’t know that Proposed Recommendations are more mature that Candidate Recommendations or that an Editor’s Draft comes before a Working Draft.
So, we worked together on a standardization status that looks more like a progress indicator for W3C statuses. Today I worked a bit on the other, non-W3C statuses as well, so I wanted some feedback.

Here’s a dabblet with all statuses: http://dabblet.com/gist/5922066

And here are various statuses in context:
ED: http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/OLD:css/cssom/CSSRegionStyleRule
WD: http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/css/properties/shape-outside
LC: http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/css/functions/var
CR: http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/css/properties/border-radius
REC: http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/css/properties/font-size
Deprecated: http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/html/attributes/lowsrc
Experimental: http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/css/properties/shape-inside

Also, I realized W3C Proposed Recommendation is not in the allowed statuses [1]. Someone should add it. I’d do it myself, but I’m not sure how.

Thanks!
