There's currently only a few APIs that use DOMStringList in the platform  
and we are in the process of replacing them all with using arrays instead.  
As they are all relatively new and not widely stable yet this should not  
pose a big problem we think. Document.styleSheetSets is one of five places  
that uses DOMStringList and it would be great if that could be changed to  
DOMString[] instead.

The DOM standard carries a warning on using DOMStringList for now, but we  
plan on dropping it in due course unless something unforeseen comes up.

Kind regards,
