I see your point now, thank you. Well, the difference is that, not many in Japan believed in UTR#50 because its quality doesn't come to good enough after one year of the work, so Japanese authors and implementers working on WebKit-based products needed a proof of UTR#50 is going to a good shape.

I know WebKit has a lot of more bugs in its vertical flow implementation, but those are issues they can work on. They actually fixed many issues and is going to upstream to Readium. Glyph orientation is an issue they can't work on, so UTC needed to fix critical issues, and we needed to show the direction.
