I suppose this all boils down to why we don't want to define this normatively.
If we think it'd be harmful for browsers to ship with these definitions built-in
then I'm not sure why we'd want to tell authors to use them. I still think some
of these definitions could be normative; others may not be. I'd rather not throw
out the former because of the latter.

Ideally, yes though that's somewhat orthogonal to what we should do with this
module. Until such an effort actually gets started and produces something we 
shouldn't make a decision based on what should ideally happen.
