Thanks for your comment Giuseppe. The CSSOM spec you refer to is an
editorial draft, and not yet complete. The section on differences will
eventually be filled in with details. As for the above DOM-2 types, some of
these have been moved to the additional CSSOM specs: CSSOM View [1] and
CSSOM Values [2].
