Part of the reason you didn't get a response may be because there is
currently no DOM WG. Thanks for the pointer.

I agree it would be better if it didn't have this problem.

Because they felt that they would not get enough implementation
experience to take it through Candidate Recommendation and to Rec before
their WG charter expired.

So its been through last call already, and is 'parked' as a Note until
such time as another WG can take it through CR. SVG WG is chartered to
do so.
