There have been a number of major new features since the last draft, 
including seamless iframes, sandboxing, MathML, showModalDialog(), etc.

Assuming you mean Web browser implementors, I am in contact with most 
major developers and have been coordinating with their desires for what to 
implement. If you or anyone knows of any browser vendors who are not in 
direct contact with me, please have them contact me directly so that I can 
help them. I have tried to be very responsive to implementor requests.

If you mean Web site developers, then it is still rather early for them to 
experiment, since we need Web browser implementations first.
