[whatwg] Meta Referrer

Hi Folks,

What is the plan (if any) for turning Meta Referrer into a standard?

Currently there's a wiki spec, which is somewhat incomplete and which modifies the middle of the HTML Fetch algorithm (probably not a future-proof approach, since it refers to a numbered step):

It's in the meta extension registry as a "proposal that doesn't meet requirements for registration":

Is there any plan to propose this for inclusion in HTML, or else write a standalone spec that is sufficiently detailed for interoperable implementations?

What do other browser vendors think of the existing proposal? Do folks plan to implement this as-is?
