Even if the resolution was not explicit, what I remember is that we agreed to have them provided the necessary security restrictions are in place. That’s my position anyway.

If we want to be able to do spelling and grammar with them, it would make sense to have text-decoration be required as well. But in General, I am not hugely in favour of making any of these optional. I don’t think there is any particular technical difficulty in supporting them, so the question is whether they are desirable. And if they are, I don’t see why this should vary per browser.
