Interesting.  I think the fundamental assumption, if the DOM interfaces 
are in the same document as the element name definitions, is that the 
most sensible place to put the description of the DOM interface an 
element implements is right next to where you describe everything else 
about the element.

Now it might make sense to clearly separate the DOM interface part from 
the markup language part, but that's a formatting issue, not a content 
issue, and doesn't involve splitting up the specification or anything 
drastic like that.
