I don't have any non-Mozilla-specific tests currently, and the
Mozilla-specific ones I have are not feasible to use cross-browser. If I
get the other spec work (and implementation work) out of the way I can
write some tests.

Given that it's still a vague idea I am fine with punting that to a

Having a wiki to document v.next work would be great, I know we have a
few things to put on there right away. If you can put up a skeleton page
I'd be happy to fill it out with what I see as topics for v.next.
