That statement is true; but "hasn't been implemented" is not true
of some of the things which it is proposed to change or drop.

Two examples off the top of my head:
   * Weight of non-CSS presentational hints --- changed, but supported
     as per CSS 2 in (at least) Internet Explorer 5 and 6.
   * Named counters --- dropped, but supported in (at least) Opera 5 and 6.
