Without commenting on whether the 6 are too many or too few, one nice thing
(based on both the spec and Opera's implementation of these) is that the
work to implement all 6 looks to not be dramatically more than the work to
implement just one.  Therefore concerns can probably remain focused on
whether this set meets the real needs of the web, without worrying about
implementation difficulty.
