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@?
