Yes, and thanks to him for clarifying. I have, now, at least a fuzzy idea of 
what is being discussed.

There have been many times I wished I had it or innerSVG to just be able to 
quickly scribble some markup into a <g> tag without having to type all those 
arthritis-inducing DOM calls, but I'm aware of some of the nastiness of 
parsing document.write that Hixie mentions and would agree that my future 
arthritis is likely to be less of a problem than the mental health costs 
associated with saddling mobile implementers with that particular task.
