So with Web IDL going to Last Call does this mean that the exception model  
outlined in http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10623#c8 is the  
way forward? I.e. we introduce new exception interfaces in DOM Core for  
all the different exception types and update all other specifications that  
use DOM Core to dispatch those exceptions instead (and they are somewhat  
backwards compatible because they inherit from DOMException and therefore  
still have the code member).

I guess there is no particular rush on this; I am mainly wondering whether  
other editors are aware of this change and agree with it.
