We should probably take a pragmatic approach, and avoid rushing to be the first to implement this aspect of the specs.

I agree we shouldn't rush on potential compatibility-breaking changes, if we can get someone else to do some testing for us first. However I believe Firefox dev builds have the new meanings of ⟩ and ⟨. They haven't discovered a problem yet, as far as I know.
