Microsoft has some concerns about this document:

1. We have received feedback from both customers and teams at Microsoft that
the name DOM Core is causing confusion with the previous versions of DOM Core.
We request that the specification be named DOM Level 4 Core. The original Web
DOM Core name would also be acceptable.

2. The scope of the document is unclear. Microsoft believes that the document
should focus on core DOM interfaces to improve interoperability for DOM Core
in the web platform and to incorporate errata. If there are problems with
other specification such as Traversal, those documents should be amended.
This functionality shouldn't be pulled into DOM Core. We believe improvements
for mutation events should be kept a separate deliverable for this working
group (ADMN).

We would prefer to see these issues addressed before moving ahead with
