Hi,

As far as I know "at-risk" is for features that do not yet have two 
independent interoperable implementations. It means that features can be 
dropped from this level to avoid blocking the rest of the spec. In that 
case they’re typically moved to the next level.

See the Candidate Recommendation exit criteria:
