Thanks for completing the survey and thanks for the suggestion. We actually have this, though it's currently structured a bit differently (single/few sponsors per feature vs. crowdfunding)

During 2012 the following features were sponsored:

- SPDY (Automattic)
- OCSP Stapling (GlobalSign, Comodo, DigiCert)
- Chunked transfer encoding on input (sponsor preferred to refrain from public announcement)
- WebSockets (due to be ready soon, and the sponsors list to be disclosed)
