I think until the spec reaches the Candidate Recommendation stage
(call for implementations), it is leading.  But once we've asked for
implementations, we should advance what we've asked for
implementations of (or the implemented subset of it) to
Recommendation, and the spec should be following the
implementations.  The leading should be left to the next release of
the specification.
