That's reasonable, and I pointed out that should be standardized 
(expressing a few doubts on the opportunity to do so through the HTML 
DOM), but now acknowledge that's out of scope for HTML 5.

That's reasonable too, and I was wondering about possible consistence 
issues with the DOM, but acknowledge as above that such would be out of 
scope for html 5.
