If the feature is required to not break the web, removing it from the 
spec just makes the spec useless as something to base implementations on.

Given that, why would you remove something from the spec unless it 
_will_ in fact be removed from browsers?  What's the point of creating 
specs if implementations still have to be based on reverse-engineering 
instead of just being able to implement the spec?
