The Voice Browser Working Group (VBWG) is completing its resolution of
issues raised during the review of the most recent Last Call Working
Draft of VoiceXML 2.1 [1].
Following the process described in [2] for advancement to Proposed
Recommendation, this is the VBWG's formal response to the issue you
raised in [3], identified as 'R121':

Implementations may expose more than the read-only subset of DOM
L2 if they wish, but only the read-only subset described in Appendix D
is required for interoperability. As acknowledged in R118 [4], it was an
editorial blunder that Appendix D describes more than the read-only
subset (e.g. Document.createElement). This will be corrected in the next
publication of the VoiceXML 2.1 specification. Regarding E4X, as stated
in [5], the DOM approach is tried and tested, is a W3C Recommendation,
and is widely implemented.
E4X is still young, and was even more so at the time the WG designed
this feature of VoiceXML 2.1.

Please indicate before 4 December 2006 whether you are satisfied with
the VBWG's resolution, whether you think there has been a
misunderstanding, or whether you wish to register an objection.

If you do not think you can respond before 4 December 2006, please let
me know. The W3C Director will appreciate a response as to whether or
not you agree with the resolution. However, if we do not hear from you
at all by 4 December 2006, we will assume that you accept our

Thank you,

Matt Oshry
Chief Editor, VoiceXML 2.1
