I think this bug can be closed as Fixed. "We shipped this in an update to IE11." https://github.com/InternetExplorer/Status.IE/issues/103

The +1s aren't needed; the IE team already committed to doing this work.

Saying "don't be the last one" is pointless; ship schedules are all different across browsers, and the value comes from everyone implementing, not on any specific schedule.

Already landed on Gecko: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1024642
IE, please don't be the last one to implement this…

This has landed in WebKit and been changed to `rebeccapurple`, per Eric and Rebecca’s wishes:

After discussion with other browsers and the W3C, we fully support this proposal and are working on implementing and shipping this.
