Chrome now makes stable releases every six weeks, so that's not a big
worry.  The real headache is that it's shipped in Safari 5.  But
that's done now, nothing to do about it.

Generally speaking, any UI is conforming, even if it's completely
braindead.  Similarly, the spec does not prohibit browsers from
randomly crashing.  In both cases, it's expected that the implementers
will fix it without the spec having to tell them to do so.  I wish it
would have happened a lot faster in this particular case, but that's
WebKit's fault, not the spec's.
