Why is there no DOM-C++ binding in DOM spec?

I've been trying to implement DOM api in C++ language.
But I just can't get past the initial design stage.
My question is:
How much freedom do I have in my implementation?
Since no official language binding is provided in the
spec (or is there any?), I suppose I can take some
 Do I need to adopt OMG IDL C++ language binding
standard? It appears very specific to CORBA, which
I'm not planning to include at this stage.
 Or is it mandatory to include some sort of "object
brokerage interface" such as CORBA or DCOM?
 How important is this "detail" such as using Attr
instead of Attribute?
 More fundamentally, do we really need this
standardization in C++ language? I can see its importance
in script languages or "light-weight" languages such as java,
which can be used, for example, inside a browser. But
I can't think of any good examples for C++ (perhaps outside
the context of CORBA or COM).
