No one has started on this yet. This part of the spec has never been  
implemented by anyone, so I suspect that if WebKit does the first  
implementation, we will likely need to give input to the relevant  
standards groups, and I suspect that we'll probably run into issues  
that require changes to the spec. That's not to say we shouldn't do  
it, but rather, whoever is working on this should be prepared to  
communicate with the standards groups on this feature.
