I think we can probably leave this reverted for now. But if Gecko/WebKit  
are not going to change things around for most attributes/methods we  
should reconsider it. That implementation experience probably does not  
need to hold up Last Call, but might end up requiring another Last Call if  
indeed it cannot be changed.
