Personally, I think you should remove the runtime flag, and be very 
aggressive on the #ifdefs to make sure everything can be disabled when 

It would be nice if you could email webkit-dev from time to time about 
your progress on completeness, testing, performance, etc.
I like Zoltan's emails about CSS Shapes status, it is something we 
should do more in the project.
