Michael,

unfortunately, there is no old document describing DOM level 0
I could point you to (I checked this with W3C's DOM expert,
Arnaud le Hors, copied above), because such a document never
existed, as far as i know.

Basing compliance on DOM level 0 is thus very difficult, if not 
impossible.

Basing compliance on DOM level 1 is possible, however, the spec
is at
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-DOM-Level-1/
