object-oriented access?

In several places in the WD of 2000/03/03, the sentence "Object-oriented
access to the attributes of the <X> element via the SVG DOM is not
available' occurs.  An example can be found in the definition of the
SVGSetElement interface.  Does this mean that the user is expected to
access and/or modify these attributes through DOM calls such as
getAttribute() and setAttribute()?  If so, what was the rationale behind
not providing access/mutator functions for these attributes in the SVGDOM
