You're welcome.

Note, however, that the timeline suggested in your message yesterday:

# TPAC 2015: All UAs have code in their browsers behind flag (off by
# default)
# TPAC 2015 - Summery or Fall 2016: PR from all UAs devrel, tooling,
# etc regarding breaking change
# Now - Early 2016: UAs do internal testing, testing via dev channels
# (if available), testing with third parties and report back any compat
# issues found to www-style thread
# Summer or Fall 2016: Find shipping date that can overlap as many UAs
# as possible as not to make it so that one UA has to carry the burden
# of "bugs"

is substantially different from what I understood Blink to be aiming at 
(shipping at the beginning of Dec), and followed for Gecko (FF43, ships 
mid-Dec). Should we be holding back from those planned dates? E.g. 
shipping this on Nightly and Developer Edition only for the time being?

Tab, can you confirm the timeline for this in the Blink world?
