I typed "leave that in", but I meant  "leave that in Chrome until I can
poke the folks who I know are using it (GitHub (Hi Neil!) and Dropbox (Hi
Dev!)), wait for Chrome 44 to roll out to stable, and then kill it."

I don't think we should add the typo to the spec, as I don't intend to keep
supporting it for more than the next ~18 weeks. :)
