           Summary: Should XMLDocument be standardized
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: bzbarsky@mit.edu

All of Gecko, WebKit, and Presto have a window.XMLDocument.  It has pretty
different behavior in the three in some ways, but its mere existence is sniffed
for by some libraries (e.g. Sarissa).  See
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=684671#c2 for the gory details.

Should this object exist?  If so, should it be an interface, or just some
random object?  If the former, what things should live on this interface, what
does it inherit from, etc.

http://html5.org/specs/dom-parsing.html defines an XMLDocument inheriting from
Document, which seems to not be web-compatible if onreadystatechange has a
typical webidl setter on Document.prototype.
