I've just seen the DOM Level 2 HTML spec updated, and it occurs to me that 
spec is not written for HTML.  With all due respect to the HTML WG, as they 
are breaking backwards-compatibility deliberately with XHTML 1 and HTML 4, I 
would suggest the WG put together a new DOM for XHTML 2.0, XForms, XFrames, 
etc.

Also, I'm wondering if the ins and del elements can include a date attribute 
(for when the change takes effect), and also an attribute for the author of 
the change.  Plus a <stet>...</stet> element, to negate an edit element, 
might be wise to retain context for those of us who wish to remove a change 
but leave reference to it there.
