[cssom] Update on the CSSOM

I recently joined the CSS WG to work on a proposal called the Cascading  
Style Sheets Object Model. The intention is that this specification will  
effectively obsolete DOM Level 2 Style by removing the problems it had and  
including some new APIs. The latest version of the editor's draft is  
publicly available:  

Changes can be tracked through CVS: http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/csswg/cssom/

The proposal basically exists of three parts: "Accessing style sheets  
through the DOM" which supercedes the "Document Object Model Style Sheets"  
chapter from DOM Level 2 Style. "Cascading Style Sheets APIs" which does  
the same for "Document Object Model CSS" and "Layout APIs" which  
standardizes some of the DOM Level 0 APIs found in popular browsers  
related to layout.

(The first part is probably the most stable thanks to Ian Hickson having  
written up the extensions to the DocumentStyle interface.)

Comments welcome (please prefix the subject with [cssom]), but please note  
the status of the draft. It will change.

Kind regards,

Anne van Kesteren
