That wouldn't be the first time. :-)

jQuery doesn't really match the Web platform's design aesthetic, with 
method names consisting purely of punctuation, methods that can be used 
both to register a callback and invoke a callback (click(f) vs click()), 
the style of using return values to enable chained invocations of methods 
on a specific object, etc.

I have great respect for jQuery as a library, but I'm not sure it's 
necessarily a given that just because jQuery does something one way, it 
makes sense for the Web platform to do it that way as well.
