If you wanted to take that type of approach to other prefixed features, I doubt I would object in most cases. As I understand the policy, it's just asking for a reasonable effort to gather data relative to what we know about the feature. Perhaps you and other readers of the policy see it as demanding an unreasonable level of work, but I don't think it does.

As discussed, I've updated
https://trac.webkit.org/wiki/DeprecatingFeatures to be a bit more
friendly and to incorporate some of the recent discussion we had on
this mailing list.

Please let me know if you have any feedback.
