If this was used in any unconditional feature we wouldn’t need this discussion.

Generally speaking we don’t want to put new DOM classes into WebKit that are there to support new features if the features themselves are conditional.

Maybe in some cases DOM classes are either useful as features in their own right or harmless. I think the argument in this case is that it’s harmless. I’m not sure that having extra classes is completely harmless; for example they might have security problems that would otherwise not be in a given version of WebKit.
