Yeah, I'm always amused when people get upset over the idea that we might
be able to get two completely bug-free implementations in only ten years.
I mean, I know it's optimistic and unprecedented, but we have to try! ;-)

The spec itself has little annotation boxes on the left hand side that
documents where implementations stand, sort-of. There's also this wiki
Both are somewhat out of date; if anyone wants to volunteer to maintain
them, please feel free to do so. If you would like some advice on how to
do so, you can either e-mail the list, or e-mail me directly, or ask on
IRC (I'm Hixie on Freenode in #whatwg).
