Is it our policy now to delete things that lack two implementations, or to merely list them as At Risk and make the determination at a later draft?

If we do delete it, can we list it as a recommendation?

What if it's possible to comply by using Stylish, GreaseMonkey, or similar add-ins? (You can come close using Stylish to apply something like * { line-height: 200%; }, but that admittedly simplistic solution works very inconsistently.)
