It has been in the spec for years, and browser vendors have declined to
implement. moving the spec to recommendation involves trimming
unimplemented features ,as they don't meet the requirements for a rec.

I don't think its Chaals intention to bin the sorting alogorithm, but to
move it out of HTML5.1 where it is not appropriately included.
