It seems that I misunderstood Florian's message. Sorry about that.

Since Tab does represent Google, I sincerely hope that he briefly
illustrate the technical reason that Google regards ::wrap as hard to
implement.

However, Google does not represent Mozilla. What Google regards as hard is
not necessarily be hard to Mozilla. So universal references are still
needed in order to show that all implementors regard ::wrap as hard to
implement.
