In the main, I'm pretty happy with this as a proposal. Yes, this is a case I think we overlooked in Redmond, and the proposed solution allows for the ability to implement the existing Selenium API, as well as being relatively non-disruptive to what we had before. Even this late in the game, we do need the functionality available for a number of user scenarios. 

+1 from me.
