There are already implementations of the spec by the selenium OSS project,
Chrome and Opera with a new implementation being built by Mozilla.

I'd be more than happy to do a demo. Is there anything that you'd find
interesting? We can start from a simple search on a well-known search
engine on multiple different browsers (including pottering across domains
in gleeful disregard of the single host origin policy) to something meatier
(potentially sending an email via gmail?) What would whet your appetite?
