Two-part answer:

- If there is no opposing proposal, we will put forth a call for consensus, rather than a survey. Implementors could object to the CfC, but then we'd likely ask any objectors to write a counter-proposal.

- If we have no implementations of the proposal by the time we go to CR, I would expect it to be listed as an "at risk" feature and dropped in due course if there continue to be no implementations. Likewise for any other HTML5 feature with no implementations going into CR.
