The DOM WG would really appreciate anyone who took the time to 
go through the specs as they're prepared and point out 
inconsistencies, misleading wordings or errors, particularly if they 
can propose better wording or say what alternative meanings can 
be read into the prose we have. DOM Level 1 benefited a lot from 
those few people who did go through the drafts and say when we 
were missing exceptions, or when we needed to add something, or 
when the prose wasn't easy to understand, and I would like to see 
this continue. 

This is why W3C specs always have an email address to send 
comments to; the more detailed the comments the more it helps 
us fix the specs. I'd suggest sending concrete comments on the 
DOM specs to the public DOM mailing list rather than this one 
(www-dom at w3.org; to suscribe send email to www-dom-
request at w3.org with the subject subscribe). And yes, the email is 
read, even if it isn't always answered directly. DOM Level 1 
changed a lot because of public feedback and comments.
