Better still, it is looking like the VMI deliverable may be dropped by the WebApps WG so that no widget-specific functionality at all ought to be needed there.

Since this is part of the CSS OM, my reading is that no, it wouldn't.

Speaking personally I'm fine with whatever makes this work fastest.
