[whatwg] .tags on HTMLCollections

Ian just pointed out to me that his current draft requires
HTMLCollections to implement a tags() method (which seems to do a filter
by tagName on the contents of the collection).
As far as I can tell, IE, Webkit, and Opera implement this; Gecko does
not. I was wondering whether any of the Webkit or Opera folks could
comment on _why_ they implement this? I haven't seen any uses of this
in the wild (outside document.all.tags, but document.all doesn't behave
like a normal HTMLCollection in all sorts of other ways either).
I'd rather be specifying (and implementing) a smaller DOM API, if that's
all that's needed for actual web compat....
