I don't mean to offend you or despise your effort (I certainly love to see
DOM mutation replacement, and am very grateful for your effort) but I don't
think we have reached a consensus yet as to what API we're implementing.  Of
course, you can always implement any vendor prefixed API you'd like.
 However, as I understand it, our goal here is to deprecate the existing
mutation events and replace it with new API.

Given that, I feel like we should spend a little more time sorting out
details so that we can be reasonably confident that all major browsers will
eventually implement the new API since there are at least 3 conflicting
proposals at the moment.
