Thanks for your comment. Other people have given us more specific
feedback about incompatibilities with other specs, and we have resolved
them.

In particular we now refer to the older version of XML Events, not the
forthcoming version (although we have given them feedback about the next
version). We have a proper subset of DOM Core, and we have worked with
SYMM WG to resolve differences (including submitting errata to them).

textArea has ben discussed in other comments.

The WG thus believes that the statement is correct, and as one of the
authors of that specification I concur.
