I like the idea, but not this concrete namning proposal. Can't  
'toString()' be overloaded to accommodate this requirement for the  
HTMLFormElement? I'm not quite sure how the overload should look like, but  
I think this variable information fits better in an argument to a method  
than in the method name itself. Thus, I'd rather see:

   HTMLFormElement.toString('application/json');

I'm not quite sure what getDataSetString() would return, though. Could you  
elaborate?
