The features in the example were specified and implemented, but only by
one browser vendor. The point was that "CSS development is slow, so let
us make more editors" is a bit too simplisitic; in the example there was
no editor shortage, yet it took over a decade from specifications and an
implementation to go to something that you can consider using some time
soon, for various reasons that need to be considered when trying to make
CSS development go faster or whatever else one might be looking for.
