Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: Done, except I made HTMLFormControlsCollection be its own interface
and put namedItem() on both interfaces so HTMLFormControlsCollection's
namedItem() overrides HTMLCollection's. I think we will probably need to add
more members to HTMLFormControlsCollection in time, because IIRC IE implements
form.elements as just an alias for form, and thus there are probably pages
depending on form.elements.foo where foo is something on HTMLFormElement (the
same problem we have with HTMLOptionsCollection).
