We’re talking about new features, whose implementation is going to be 
years in the future. Plenty of time for IE, when they’re going to 
implement this, to fix their fallback behaviour at the same time.

I don’t see why a current (fixable) bug in one browser should put limits 
on future behaviour... The other implementations clearly show that this 
can be implemented interoperably, and as far as the specification is 
concerned this should be enough, for now.

So as I said, I don’t think there is a problem.
