I am fine with raising issues to be discussed (and I am planning on doing  
so), but do we really need to resolve them before proceeding with  
publication? Is having a clear warning at the start of the "Events"  
section not sufficient, as Adrian suggested?

Actually, before you worked on that Simon Pieters wrote fair bit of Web  
DOM Core (now DOM Core). Then Geoffrey Sneddon. Then Ms2ger. And only then  
I started helping out.

Do you have a bitbucket.org account? Ms2ger and I use  
https://bitbucket.org/ms2ger/dom-core as our primary repository. We  
typically coordinate editorial ideas in #whatwg and for them we also do  
commit first, then review every so often. Changes to existing features are  
brought up for discussion on public-webapps@w3.org, usually after we  
sanity checked them with each other. So far we have avoided adding new  
features as we would like to first reach some kind of stability with the  
current DOM implementations. If this all works for you I think it can work  

I have not run this by Ms2ger though I suspect he will agree.

To be frank I am a little skeptical given our strained relationship to  
date, but I am willing to give it a try.

Kind regards,

Anne van Kesteren
