The spec reads:

"Let class be a string whose value is determined as follows:"

Using the word "class" makes it annoying during implementation, because class
is reserved in many languages (hence I can't "var class = "). Please change it
to <var>classType</var> or some such. This makes it easier to implement makes
the spec and implementation consistant.
