Some suggestions from Alex Russell. I like the "x-domain XHR" suggestion.

Work wise (I work on device APIs for mobiles http://wiki.webvm.net/ ),
some sort of "location query" would be great. Does Opera have any
thoughts on that?

The location test would be probably be very naive in the sense it
would just verify a GPS co-ordinate of somewhere on earth I imagine.

Sidenote: I should be going to Xtech in Dublin this year. Any of you guys going?

 Hey Kai,

 Good to hear from you.

 The test looks like it hits a lot of important stuff today. A lot of
the things that I'd want to see included don't have applicable
standards right now or are the matter of some debate, including:

        - document.querySelectorAll()/node.querySelectorAll()
        - location queries
        - <input> element support for non-text media types (location,
audio, video, etc.)
        - x-domain XHR of some variety
        - events for mobile-specific use-cases

 Obviously, having SVG and canvas in there are super-important and I'm
glad they're represented. Fundamentally, though, we need things like
querySelectorAll, good CSS support, and some new tags to help keep us
from needing as much JavaScript as we do these days.
