It's not really clear to me that there's a set of specs that "ask all
browsers to implement them" and another set that don't. (I for one do not
plan to implement features that are not, will not, or should not be used,
just because they're in the HTML spec.) But I don't really care either, as
long as we end up with a good API with a good spec that has had open
discussion and development just like we're doing here.

Anyway, based on Aaron's mail it sounds like there is some interest from
beyond Mozilla.
