Thanks, I wasn't aware of that spec. I assume that when it is complete, web UAs will be expected to conform to *instead of* the regular DOM 3 Core spec. And that, say, the HTMLElement interface in HTML5 will extend from the Web DOM Core Element interface. Is that correct, or will this spec simply augment the DOM 3 Core spec and point out differences that web UAs have?

Also, it looks like the spec is in very early stages. Do you know if there is any timeline (unofficial or otherwise) associated with the spec?
