I'd like to point out, and possibly repair a factoid bug
in the petition.

In particular, the DOM specification had Java and ECMA Script
bindings in the first version.  Thus "recent changes" above
is incorrect, this unfortunately (my fault) was not fixed
ealier.  IMHO, the above paragraph should read:

Very sorry,

Clark

P.S.  Uche, can we have a 'known bugs' section?  *sigh*
