elementWidth:Int32, READ/WRITE
elementHeight:Int32, read/write
elementAbsTop:Int32, READ/WRITE
elementAbsLeft:Int32, read/write
elWidth:Int32, READ/WRITE
elHeight:Int32, read/write
elAbsTop:Int32, READ/WRITE
elAbsLeft:Int32, read/write

unless you want to make .width and .height, .top and .left work read/write ALL
the time and the same on all platforms, this would be wonderful. 

I would really like to know when it comes into effect.

these need to be accessible especially from css attr(), calc(), and also from
javascript, so my best figuring was that this needed to be added to DOM.

these need to be accessible when the element is available (when loaded).
currently, unless you have specified an element's height and width, there is no
way to get the element's width and height values. 
it's currently an "it's there if you happen to set it" thing.
this does not work for DHTML and especially layers.
