After rereading 6.1 and 6.2, I think the note under 6.2 is trying to tell
us that 6.1 is specifying what content/information items (document,
element, attribute, character) must be accessible programatically, and 6.2
is discussing how to access that content and information (in-process or
out-of-process DOM interfaces exposed through JavaScript, XUL, COM C++
bindings, accessibility APIs, etc). As we discussed, a major concern with
these 2 guidelines is that out-of-process DOM APIs (such as accessibility
APIs and ISimpleDOMNode) are often readonly and not read/write, which can
be a problem for users of these APIs, such as ATs. But in-process APIs,
such as JavaScript and XUL, which are used by plugins, extensions, and
DHTML/AJAX Web applications, are read-write so there isn't a problem for
