Not in the standard DOM bindings. Your implementation may support it as an
additional API,, but portability is not guaranteed. (Dynamically adding
fields to objects is a very JavaScriptish approach; the DOM is designed for
cross-language portability, and most languages won't let you get away with
this.)
