It's not correct to state the 'Mozilla Dispenses with Old, Proprietary DOM' when the decision is narrowly limited to aspects of <LAYER> and document.layer.

A question for a previous poster, while I'm here --- what about DOM2 is missing in your opinion? (Not saying that you're wrong, and I do know, for instance that accessing computed values of element style is not fully specified (and may not be in DOM2). Just curious.
