Yes. But again, gradients were shipped and spread before standardization
even started. This is the root of the problem.

Not only. If we compare what happened with Gradients and Regions,
Gradients were submitted to the WG at the time Apple shipped them;
Regions were submitted to the WG only with a JS-based prototype,
and Adobe started (AFAIK) stronger implementation only afterwards.

These are entirely different processes. In the latter case,
implementation started on something already discussed. Not in the
former one.
