Using a wiki is one way of handling the mechanics of specification or 
registry update, but it doesn't do much for resolving compatibility issues. 
If I have a non-Javascript browser that, for a text/html representation, 
interprets as an (attempt to) reference an 
anchor with id="frag", then it's conforming today. We'd still have to come 
up with a compatiblity story (and I think we could if we wanted to -- it's 
just that using a Wiki says nothing about what it is).
