Since you sent your e-mail, both UndoManager and mutation events have had 
work done on them outside the HTML spec.

UndoManager is now specced here:

   http://rniwa.com/editing/undomanager.html

...and is being discussed on threads in this mailing list.

Mutation events are being discussed in public-webapps at w3.org.

I encourage you to take part in these discussions.

Cheers,
