When a standard invents new functionality, it's usually a mistake. It's better to gain experience with a prototype implementation, and if it works well, standardize that.
If a browser maker announces an experimental feature and does not assert patent rights that block others from using it, and it works out well, the standards committees can then add it to future standards.
