It's a reasonable concern, though I think it really depends on how we
define what the feature is. I think one can have, say, border-radius as
a stable feature while multiple backgrounds are being worked on as they
are orthogonal. Or box-shadow vs. border-radius. As long as the 'CR boundary'
is set in the right place, it needn't be harmful to the spec or authors.

"...than a document which change every week and that mix proposals, drafts 
and accepted properties" That pretty much describes HTML5 over the past few
years. Do authors hate it for being that way ?
