As I said in the very first e-mail on this subject, that's what I'd like 
to do. However, that's a significantly higher cost (years vs weeks) than 
releasing an errata, and it was my impression that the Mozilla community 
would like a quick turnaround on this.

What I recommend is that we release an errata as soon as possible, while 
simultaneously looking for someone to rewrite the DOM Level 2 "Traversal 
and Range" specification.
