Feedback on getEnclosureList and getIntersectionList DOM methods

Hello www-svg!

The SVG WG is looking for feedback on changing the SVG 1.1 DOM methods  
'getIntersectionList' and 'getEnclosureList' to return static NodeLists  
[1].

The current situation is that only one implementation supports these  
methods, and that the returned values are static. This means that if the  
elements change in the tree the list is not re-evaluated automatically,  
the method just returns the list of elements that were intersected at the  
time the method was called. Should an updated list be needed the method  
can be called again.

The expectation is that with the change from live NodeLists to static  
NodeLists there will be more implementations that support these methods.

Cheers
/Erik, on behalf of the SVG WG (ACTION-1738)
