I don't think this risks adding any fuel to a flame war - i believe there is violent agreement on this everywhere.

The current W3C Process says 

A Public Working Draft is published on the W3C's Technical Reports page [TR] for review, [... and ...]

should document outstanding issues, and parts of the document on which the Working Group does not have consensus, ...

While this doesn't necessarily mean implementation status implementation contributes significantly to establishing consensus.

and for all advancements in status (this doesn't apply to making a new WD, but that strikes me as a bug we might want to fix)
should provide information about implementations known to the Working Group.

The precise details of exactly how to provide the information are probably best left to the Working Group or editors, although some common tools would be helpful.
