I think this bug can be closed as Fixed. "We shipped this in an update to IE11."

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.

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