Progress can be made imminently. Just tell me what you need. There's no 
reason this has to take a long time. The only reason it isn't in the spec 
already is that it hasn't been requested -- as far as I'm aware, until the 
past week, the last person who mentioned it on the list was me, several 
years ago.

If multiple vendors are interested in a more elaborate solution that 
doesn't expose more fingerprinting bits, we can do that right away. What 
would be most helpful to do that is detailed descriptions of use cases, 
common pitfalls, experience with existing systems like Apple's GCD, 
strawman API proposals, and criticisms thereof.
