Or maybe better would be to not use generic names for the command API that then
lead to collisions?  It's not like you can prevent people tabbing to <textarea>
anyway!

> It's not a big deal that they both be there though

It is, though, since the spec needs to define behavior for the "superclass"
functions/getters/setters being applied to the "subclass" and currently it may
or my not do so in sane ways due to the assumption that such things can't
happen.

> Having said that, I'm not aware of us ever having made such a mistake.

Given your comments about <textarea>, I'm not convinced at all.
