For the things that are used in one imlementation but that aren't widely
supported it's probably a good approach to keep them in the spec but
mention that they are an optional part of the spec for know and specify
what implementations that don't support the functionality should do with
I expect that will come down to a slight more verbose version of "Just
ignore it."
