            Bug ID: 28107
           Summary: TreeWalker nextNode never ascends the tree
           Product: WebAppsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DOM

The https://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#dom-treewalker-nextnode algorithm seems wrong
to me. It only ever seems to descend to the first child of a node, or to its
sibling, but never returns to a higher level.
In contrast, its dual https://dom.spec.whatwg.org/#dom-treewalker-previousnode
does "Set node to its parent." when no more siblings are found.
This also would be consistent to the
which says the method should "Moves the TreeWalker to the next visible node in
document order relative to the current node".

Btw, where did the
sections go? They seemed quite helpful, what's the reason they were omitted
from the current spec?
