The analogies are wrong. We are free to spec anything, but it's not a reason to disallow something that already work in favor of something that does not exist yet.

Correct analogies:
* disallow floats just because new layout models are in development;
* disallow using Modernizr since we have unimplemented css3-conditional draft;
* disallow using find&replace since we have a draft for spec variables.
