Why not?

What would be a legitimate platform-specific thing to introduce?
Surely the a priori assumption of anyone who is introducing a feature
and believing the feature to be Good for the Web should be that the
feature will be eventually implemented by everyone. Maybe others will
disagree and outright refuse to implement the feature, but still, the
assumption one should start with when introducing a new feature is
that it's so good that everyone should want it. If the introducer of
the feature doesn't believe the feature to be so good, they shouldn't
be introducing the feature.
