The techniques section of the guidelines discusses performance issues when
accessing the DOM. In particular it recommends being able to access the DOM
"in-process." We did some initial performance testing comparing traversing the
IE DOM in process and out of process. In-process was roughly ten times faster
than out of process. This is more than significant, but not surprising.
