> For reference, section 6 includes:
> 
> - Rules for traversing a link (or other navigation)
> - Spec for the "DOM Level 0" Window (global) object
> - Definition of the same-origin security model
> - A description of how scripting and events work
> - Spec for timers
> - Spec for various prompt-related methods such as Window.alert
> - Spec for the "DOM Level 0" Navigator object
> - Spec for the Application Cache (which includes specific HTML syntax)
> - Definitions of the various link relations (such as rel="next" and
> rel="nofollow")

DOM Level 0 is a nickname, a reference to the Browser Object Model. It has
existed separate from HTML for a decade. 

Most of the other items you reference are not specific to HTML, XHTML, or the
DOM. Those aspects that are related specifically to HTML, XHTML, or the DOM,
according to what we could reasonably expect, could  be incorporated back into
the document, into another, relevant section. 

Ask yourself something: is the DOM Level 0 necessary for ePub? For other
non-browser applications? Are timers? Window.alert? Or are these specific needs
for specific user agents?
