If we take out section 3.6.10 from WICD Mobile (the one you are 
commenting on), there are no other references to the Window Object 1.0 
specification.

The wording we have specifically says that the requirement comes from 
the Window 1.0 specification ("... must be an implementation of the 
Window interface as defined in the Window 1.0 spec.").

As any review and in particular as a member of the working group which 
authored the specification you are commenting on, you are more than 
welcome to make a concrete proposal for a better wording that would 
address your concerns. It is usually a lot easier to get your point 
across if you not only point out something you are not satisfied with 
but also a proposed better way.

Regards,
Vincent.
