Working Group Resolution (LC-2640):
The specification extends the input element's File Upload state, which is
defined in HTML5. In order to be consistent with the HTML5 spec, this spec
also specifies the extensions in terms of the DOM. Here's the relevant
HTML5 reference:


Since DOM trees are used as the way to represent HTML documents when they
are processed and presented by implementations (especially interactive
implementations like Web browsers), this specification is mostly phrased in
terms of DOM trees, instead of the markup described above.



Use of the input element is shown in the examples in Appendix A.
