At the very beginning of the uDOM's design, every method that was not  
strictly necessary was pulled, and this is a remainder of decisions  
made then. Were we to design this interface today, we would likely  
support the relative methods, however at this late stage we are  
reluctant to make changes that only concern developer convenience. It  
is likely that we will add these in 1.3 however.

Thank you very much for your thorough review, please let us know  
shortly if this does not address your concerns,
