I think any publicly-available implementation should definitely count.
 If it's interoperable to the level we want, why should we care if the
implementer doesn't want to release it to all their users yet for some
reason, or labels it "experimental"?  Even if someone only implemented
it in a browser extension -- if it's an interoperable implementation,
it's an interoperable implementation.  The point is just to show that
it's interoperably implementable based on the spec, so any
implementation at all is fine.  But we should only count public
implementations, for the sake of transparency.
