====== On element() ======

There's a ton of substantive issues on element(), particularly on the use of
elements that are not in the document. Given:

   - the number of issues and their relative severity
   - the state of references to CSSElementMap
   - various other things that are undefined (style resolution of elements
     not in a document, anyone?)
   - and the fact that the currently-proposed solution requires either scripting
     or presentation-only elements in the document even for simple cases like
     "I want to use a bunch of statically-defined paint servers written in SVG"

I have very strong reservations about taking the use of element() references
to loose elements to CR within the next 2 weeks...
