The W3C i18n WG did discuss this with Hixie but took an action to look into
things in more detail. See

Just after meeting with Hixie we put out a document that began looking 
at ruby
use cases and discussing how the various markup models apply to each. After
several iterations and a lot of discussion, we have just published the final
version of that document as a WG Note, see
http://www.w3.org/TR/ruby-use-cases/. We tried to make the HTML5 
approach work
for the use cases we knew to be needed, but the upshot is that in the 
end the
extension specification at http://darobin.github.io/html-ruby/ seems to 
us the
best approach.

Earlier this year we had a workshop about internationalization and 
ebooks, and
ruby and vertical text were ranked by attendees as two most urgent 
needing support for their markets.  After the workshop, we had 
expressions of
interest to implement the extension spec from Google and Safari teams. 
We also
spoke with Microsoft, who expressed interest.

The CSS Ruby module spec was recently republished
(http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-ruby/) with changes that were designed
collaboratively with the approach in the ruby extension spec. The processing
and terminology are aligned so the semantics and styling match up.
