I guess having these supported as part of the browser engine does not
matter much. It's mostly new specifications we care about. As long as
those don't use it, browsers won't have it either (even though it
would theoretically work). Maybe Web IDL should have some kind of
implementor/spec-writer split as far as conformance goes.
