Not hardly.

Keep in mind that:
1. NS and MS are both active members of the WGs.  Therefore they know
what kinds of standards are being worked on and can start work on support
in their browsers.
2. Nearly all of what is in HTML 4.0 has been known for months as the
Cougar draft, as well as a score of drafts from the individial WGs.  There
is very little that is very new, so implementors have had a while.

On top of that there are many things in HTML 4.0 that are not in the
browsers yet.
