If you're trying to work out whether a technology is usable or not, then it
being successful or not is a useful indicator.

The things that haven't had much deployed success are either obsoleted (like
profile="") or mostly harmless (like <kbd>). As far as I know, none of the new
features rely on design patterns that we have reason to believe won't succeed.
If I'm wrong about this, please file bugs about them.
