For what it's worth, this is pretty much a perfect illustration of 
what's wrong with the W3C process and its versioning from my point of 
view...  An implementor comes to the WG saying the spec is not 
web-compatible, during the time period that is supposed to be for 
implementor feedback, and the decision is to freeze the spec as-is and 
push off making it web-compatible to a nebulous v2.

To be clear, I'm not trying to call out the webperf working group in 
particular here; this sort of thing happens a lot.  It's the nature of 
the process...
