I agree to this. But before we consider adopting new documents for e.g. 
VideoWorker or ImageBitmap extensions I'd like to see commitment from 
those implementing and experimenting. If they say "we think we're on to 
something here, and we think it should be standardized" we consider 
doing that. My understanding is that we are not at that stage yet (but 
as already said: discussion belongs here).

I would also expect a migration path.
