The statuses go, in order from least mature to most mature:

Editor's Draft (ED)
Working Draft (WD)
Last Call for Comments (LC)
Candidate Recommendation (CR)
Proposed Recommendation (PR)
Recommendation (REC)

By long tradition, browsers use vendor prefixes if they're
implementing a spec that is less than CR, as that's the point where
it's mature enough to be called "finished", at least provisionally.

There is no timeline for Image Values, though I expect it to progress
at a relatively decent clip.
