That's because they're trying to create something that works in all 
browsers, etc, and assuming all they have to work with are the old DOM 
specs.

See http://hixie.ch/specs/css/dom/altss/altss for a spec proposal for 
making all this much simpler.  Gecko has implemented this for years; I 
believe so has Webkit.  It's too bad it never got standardized...
