<http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-2-HTML/html.html#ID-642250288> contains the
same deprecating statement.  Using e.g. A.tabindex in script code is
deprecated.  I do not believe it can be performance hit; accessing host
objects is expensive per call.  Otherwise, Attr.asScalar would be welcome.

This is already clearly defined in DOM 2 HTML.
So following your line of reasoning, the entire DOM 2 HTML spec is
deprecated ?
