I've reverted the parts of that check-in that affected the W3C spec. There 
were some changes to what was marked as class=impl in that particular 
checkin (which affects how the developers.whatwg.org copy is generated) 
which were not related to bug 11557 and which I presume were not at issue 
here (since they don't affect the W3C copy in any meaningful way), so I 
haven't reverted those.
