Er, which IE?

Seen as (by how I read the process) the spec cannot reach a mature
stable level until there are native implementations, why should we
bother with this restriction?  Why not do it properly rather than have
a half assed load of methods duplicating nothing that isn't already
done in script - no-one will be able to use the specification in a
commercial environment until the spec is mature, why not leave the
proof of concept scripting to be done on a good useful specification?
