In addition to these features, the "Harmony" label highlights other features expected to become part of the specification soon. Decorators are one of such anticipated features. Nearly ten years have passed since the first mentions of decorators. The decorators' specification has been rewritten several times, almost from scratch, but they have not become part of the specification yet.
