Agree.

I believe the ideal here was that, while we could go into detail about the
w3c status and the implementers' status anywhere on the page, the visitor
would benefit from an heraldic indicator of whether a given feature is
production-ready. So I think your banner is apropos. Highlighting the status
is the most important feature. Colors are extra.

Regards.

Hi Julee,

I¡¯m not sure how gracefully this implementation degrades or how
cross-browser it is, it was just a quick prototype. If we add it however, I
will make sure it does.

I was thinking of having Editor¡¯s Draft being red, Working Draft being light
blue and CR, PR, REC the current dark violet blue color. However, adding
classes for different statuses is something I cannot do myself, so it might
be worth adding it with the same color for every status at first, and making
the change later.

Let me know what you think.

Cheers,
Lea
