IE implemented this feature in some sense as HTML+Time, and it has seen 
very limited adoption. 

Benjamin and Robert's comments also apply:


Incidentally, if I could encourage you to avoid cross-posting messages to 
the WHATWG list and to other lists at the same time, that would be great. 
The WHATWG list has a member-only posting policy, and when threads are 
cross posted, the threads end up fragmented as only messages written by 
list members make it to the list, which can be irritating to other 
subscribers. Thanks!

Things that are impossible just take longer.   `._.-(,_..'--(,_..'`-.;.'
