I believe new HTML elements should go through a standards process, be debated by multiple parties (not one), be useful to most websites (pave the cowpaths), and be written in language that makes sense for HTML, especially for folks who don’t speak English well. So no on this.

Think of all the many HTML elements that were considered and rejected over the years — and we are supposed to be on-board with TOAST? Because a couple guys at Google decided they want it. And they can. So no to <footnote> <author> <publication-date> But yes to <toast> ???

OH "wait this is a real thing? I thought this was satire" No, unfortunately. Not satire.

Not satire at all. Seems to be the new world with two browser implementations. Where one has most of the market share, so therefore most of the power. And apparently little belief in the standards process that we’d painstakingly grown out of the ashes of the browser wars.

But whatever. The point I'm getting at is that when developers tell you to slow down, we're not being killjoys. We just recognize that the web is permanent, and we feel like Google is less worried about that fact than we are.
