This change depends on DOM4, which is fine, but I'm wondering if there's  
any way we could get the links to DOM4 inserted automatically, like we do  
for svg definitions, interfaces and so on. It's confusing that the links  
in the IDL goes to DOM2 Core (e.g for Element) and not to DOM4. I guess  
it's ok to just update the links now, but that doesn't help future places  
in the spec that might need to reference the same, and right now it's easy  
to make the external links inconsistent by accident.

I think we probably have a number of out-of-date links to other specs  
scattered across the chapters. We will need to deal with that situation  
sooner or later. I expect that it will get trickier to track and update  
those the more specs we reference.
