>You say that this proposed solution is applicable to any modern browser engine, but we haven't heard from anyone else on this topic but Chrome engineers.

The reason why we haven't heard from others is likely that Chrome engineers are the first ones to implement the specification, and as such have invested significant amount of time into the work and reviewed the spec more closely than others. Why not make the Editor's Draft spec reflect reality aka the first implementation? The implementation is subject to change as long as the spec is considered a draft.

The spec update in #197 makes it easier for other browser vendors to scrutinise the design without peeking into the Chromium codebase and reverse-engineer its behaviour. The spec as it is currently, is not documenting any implementation, so it's not helping other browser vendors understand what we're up to, or provide constructive feedback that would help change also Chrome's implementation for better.
