Yes - but are there any, that don't invent their own APIs?

The great thing about implementing W3C standards is that you can easily replace one library with another (if they both implement the API specified by W3C), if you are unsatisfied with one implementation. And some day when "all" browsers support the standards, you can just get rid of the Javascript compatibility code and your site will keep working, just much cleaner.
