getElementsByClassName is currenly non-specific about the order of the 
nodes in the returned NodeList. Unless there is a good reason not to, it 
should probably specify the NodeList is in document order, matching 
getElementsByTagName. This matches the current behavior of Firefox and 
Opera. See [1] for dicussion.
