I didnt' suggest it was. However, if test suites are not available, then I
would wonder about the maturity and or consensus status within the W3C
arena. I ask because I'm curious about the maturity/stability of this
feature. I also find it useful to apply a degree of caution to features
that are coming from WHATWG if there is no counter-commitment to move those
features forward in the official W3C REC track.
