Opera's implementation is buggy. The async version never fires a load  
event, handling of errors is all messed up and some functions don't work.  
It's pretty much useless except for synchronous loading in perfect  

It seems that everyone wants DOM3 L&S to die and to have everyone use JS  
to make their own wrapper around XHR + DOMParser + XMLSerializer etc. to  
do what DOM3 L&S does.
