The spec now states that objects in the system are either "platform objects" or
"user objects".  (Better name suggestions welcome.)  The former are objects for
objects implementing Node, the latter for EventListener.  I added a slightly
waffley section attempting to describe this:

http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/WebIDL/#idl-objects

In the ECMAScript binding, most mentions of host objects have been replaced by
platform objects and native objects with user objects, where appropriate. 
Hopefully this is sufficient to "allow" ECMAScript to be the DOM implementation
language as well as the author script language.
