IMO, the language (Javascript) and binding (of APIs) have nothing to  
do with how the names are scoped for this call.  That is a matter of  
the object model, the Document Object Model.

I agree that there may have been many more error-free or more  
functional approaches.  I suspect it is unlikely to change at this  
point merely by comments made in this list.

The DOM specification was an attempt to get a standard that browser  
and other developers could agree on.  This was especially true in the  
case of the HTML DOM (focus on browser vendors).

Before any changes or improvements could be considered, I believe you  
would have to reestablish a situation where this sort of consensus  
between browser vendors could be reforged.
