My impression was that the consensus at the teleconference of the Internationalization WG on 2013-01-16 was stronger:

Section 8.6 should be removed entirely, primarily because there's not a single implementation of it under development. In addition to that, the section has changed since ITS 1.0, so implementations of that version don't conform to it, and it is not aligned with ruby in HTML5 in either the present form nor a form it might take if current proposals are taken up.
