(My apology for responding late, a single week is a rather short time 
for those of us who are not paid for this work.)

In the first place I'd like to note that I'm unhappy with the way this 
specification is being edited. The way it is explicitly trying to 
contradict the DOM standard is uncannily similar to the way DOM 3 Events 
did that (which, as you may remember, led to the WG deciding against 
those requirements). I don't think this specification has received 
sufficient review to call it LC-ready, especially given that there has 
not been any discussion of the changes before this CfC.

I also wish to strongly object to the following change:


which you made after the end of the CfC. I don't think it is appropriate 
to make such a change without requesting review. The change to the list 
of editors reverts bug 18935 [1], and incorrectly suggests that I am 
involved with this fork. Even worse is the removal of the reference to 
the source specification, given that you know that this is a contentious 
subject in this WG.

I therefore object to the publication of this specification in the 
current form.
