So does this mean that you'll add back Theora if it's implemented in
Opera, Mozilla and Chrome? ;)

My point is that you're inconsistent here. Previously a feature hasn't
been put in the spec if some vendor says that they won't implement it.
In this case you seem to be doing the opposite, and not remove it from
the spec unless all major vendors agree to remove it.

I sent a formal request to have .tags removed from HTMLCollection to
the whatwg list.
