Ok, let's take this assertion more closely then. Naive questions.

All browser vendors have _now_ different implementations of ::selection.
Shipped implementations. Reaching consensus will imply changing code
of shipped features, right? Will probably break a few things "people
may have come to rely upon", right? Or because it's shipped will we
remain with non-interoperable implementations of the same non-prefixed
