Due to the direct involvement from vendors (including you) in the last
couple of months there have been changes. That's what involvement is
all about. Also, other people have contributed (including this
list). At this point, most area of the specification is stable and
only refinements are expected. However, we do not want to close the
specification before full implementations exist.

I presume your "features" refer to the CSS "properties" ? It would
be very helpful if you let us know how we could improve the properties
while maintaining the functionality.
