> Quoting from the Element Traversal
> W3C Candidate Recommendation - 13 August 2008
> http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/CR-ElementTraversal-20080813/

>     Abstract
>     --------
>
>     This specification defines the ElementTraversal interface, which
> allows script navigation of the elements of a DOM tree, excluding all
> other nodes in the DOM, such as text nodes. It also provides an
> attribute to expose the number of child elements of an element. It is
> intended to provide a more convenient alternative to existing DOM
> navigation interfaces, with a low implementation footprint.
>
>     Status of This Document
>     -----------------------
>
>     Publication as a Candidate Recommendation does not imply  
> endorsement
> by the W3C Membership. This is a draft document and may be updated,
> replaced or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is
> inappropriate to cite this document as other than work in progress.
>
> This section describes the status of this document at the time of its
> publication. Other documents may supersede this document. A list of
> current W3C publications and the latest revision of this technical
> report can be found in the W3C technical reports index at
> http://www.w3.org/TR/.
>
> This is the 13 August 2008 Candidate Recommendation of the Element
> Traversal specification. W3C publishes a Candidate Recommendation to
> indicate that the document is believed to be stable and to encourage
> implementation by the developer community. The Web Applications
> (WebApps) Working Group expects to request that the Director advance
> this document to Proposed Recommendation once the Working Group has
> developed a comprehensive Element Traversal test suite, and  
> demonstrated
> at least two interoperable implementations for each test. The WebApps
> Working Group expects to show these implementations by October 2008,
> based on known implementations. The Working Group does not plan to
> request to advance to Proposed Recommendation prior to 01 October  
> 2008.
>
> This is a W3C Candidate Recommendation. The Last Call Working Draft  
> for
> this specification resulted in a number of Last Call comments which  
> have
> all been addressed by the WebApps Working Group, a list of which  
> can be
> found in the Disposition of Comments.
>
> Please send comments to public-webapps@w3.org, the public email  
> list for
> issues related to WebApps WG deliverables. This list is publicly
> archived, and acceptance of this archiving policy is requested
> automatically upon first post. To subscribe to this list send an email
> to public-webapps-request@w3.org with the word "subscribe" in the
> subject line.
>
> This document has been produced by the Web Applications (WebApps)
> Working Group as part of the W3C Rich Web Clients Activity, following
> the procedures set out for the W3C Process. The WebApps Working Group
> expects to advance this Working Draft to Recommendation Status.
>
> The ElementTraversal interface was originally published as part of the
> SVG Tiny 1.2 specification in the SVG namespace. At the request of the
> SVG, CDF, JCP, and other groups, it was transferred to the WebAPI WG,
> and migrated to DOM and DOM namespace as a generic facility. It was
> transferred again when the WebApps WG took responsibility for the
> deliverables of the WebAPI WG.
>
> This document was produced by a group operating under the 5 February
> 2004 W3C Patent Policy. W3C maintains a public list of any patent
> disclosures made in connection with the deliverables of the group;  
> that
> page also includes instructions for disclosing a patent. An individual
> who has actual knowledge of a patent which the individual believes
> contains Essential Claim(s) must disclose the information in  
> accordance
> with section 6 of the W3C Patent Policy.
>
>
> The Web Applications Working Group will publish a comprehensive  
> test suite
> and implementation report to ensure interoperability, and expects to
> receive more comments in the form of implementation feedback and  
> test cases.
> The Working Group believes it will have satisfied its implementation
> criteria by 1 October 2008.  The test suite and implementation  
> report will
> be linked from the Working Group's home page:
