That is a very good point, Bjoern, and one I noticed, too.

The danger is that these props appear to be analagous to properties
that have been the source of pain for web developers. Particularly the
currentStyle.hasLayout .

What if Opera put someone in the CSS WG in charge of standardizing
Microsoft properties in a way that was inconsistent with Microsoft

If a such spec were produced, and Webkit and Mozilla were to implement
it, then IE would be incompliant with its own properties.

Mozilla and Safari do have a proven track record of implementing and
relying w3c specs.

This plan would benefit Opera by making IE incompatible with the web.
