Won't hurt to do a proof of concept in JS. Would show what is possible and various applications.

Well, you would need to get this included into something like JQuery's core to have any relevance. Otherwise, yeah: you is gonna need them. 

In any case, it's too early to be having this discussion, but it would probably not hurt to do a litmus test on browser makers about their level of interest and asking them to actively contribute (we have Anne here already, who works for one and is fairly influential amongst the key players - which is a great start in lending this effort any sort of credibility).
