If this is a MUST, this seems like a possible compat issue depending on 
whether the method is native or library-provided, at the very least. 
There's also been talk at least in Gecko of self-hosting some DOM 
methods in JS (e.g. getElementById), at which point they will no longer 
be implemented in native code.

I'm not sure this is a fatal issue (and I haven't been following this 
thread closely enough in general to be sure of anything); just pointing 
out that it's an issue.
