I wouldn't mind. I'm on both lists anyway. Schepers originally saw it as a way of scoping DOM3 Events discussions away from the noise on public-webapps. I'm not sure that's a real big concern anymore.

This confusion seems to come up a lot since DOM is part of public-webapps but uses a separate mailing list. Maybe it's time to reconsider that decision? It's the editors of the specs who have the largest say here IMO.

Travis, Jacob, Ms2ger, Aryeh, Anne: How would feel about merging DOM discussions back into public-webapps@?

Elliott, All - please use the www-dom@w3.org<mailto:www-dom@w3.org> list for DOM4 discussions <http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-dom/>.

(Elliott, since that spec is still in the draft phase, you should probably use the latest Editor's Draft <http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/domcore/raw-file/tip/Overview.html> instead of the version in w3.org/TR/<http://w3.org/TR/>)

-Thanks, AB

I'm working on places where Webkit doesn't follow the DOM4 mutation algorithm and one of the bugs is not throwing an exception when a doctype node is inserted after an element in a document (or other permutations of the same situation).

https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=88682
http://www.w3.org/TR/domcore/#mutation-algorithms

After discussing this with some other contributors there were questions on why we're enforcing the order of the document child nodes. Specifically since inserting a doctype node doesn't actually change the doctype so this situation is very unlikely (possibly never happens) in the wild. Not implementing this keeps the code simpler for a case that developers likely never see.

Can we leave the behavior when your document is out of order unspecified?
