I'd agree we should look at high level gaps at this stage instead of 
specific implementations. Even HTML5 behaves so differently across 
browsers that we should not depend on the current implementation to 
decide what to choose. Measuring performance and number of browsers 
supporting is IMHO a bad argument for picking a standard, unless we are 
specifically favoring a particular vendor.

We should look at actual requirements and gaps from real deployments to 
decide what to include in or exclude from our spec.
