ISSUE-6 (Element Traversal Nodelist): Should the ElementTraversal Interface Have a Nodelist? [Element Traversal]

http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/track/issues/

Raised by: Doug Schepers
On product: Element Traversal

Daniel Glazman requested that a nodelist or item accessor be added to the ET spec, in <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapi/2008Mar/0226.html>, spawning a long thread.

Doug discussed the history of similar proposals, from himself, Mozilla, and others in <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-webapi/2008Mar/0246.html>.

On the plus side, it would allow for discrete access to elements in some use cases, and would be easy to implement for UAs that already have a nodelist implementation.  On the downside, it is heavier to implement if the UA doesn't already have nodelist (such as some mobile uses), and ET is already referenced by other specifications.
