W3C will standardise web technology that gets deployment.

In this case, there is no policy problem I can see, so long as specs  
either clarify that the security model means something *should not* be  
implemented in a "general use" browser - but then it is harder to show  
that it is the right thing to standardise so you need to be extra clear  
explaining the use cases and requirements, or they do things that will not  
cause security problems in a general use browser - which seem the more  
obvious path.
