This is precisely the way I see it.

For those who think we need something simpler than the DOM, please explain
what it is that you would supply, and how it is simpler than the DOM. To
me, the part of the DOM that deals with elements and attributes seems about
as simple as you can get.

For those who think that web hackers can't grok the DOM, can web hackers
grok dynamic HTML? Didn't the DOM start out as a way to do a
browser-independent version of dynamic HTML? Yes, it has added
functionality since then, but I think that the part of the DOM that web
hackers need is also easily understood by web hackers. On the other hand,
better documentation for this subset would be useful, but the standard
isn't finished yet...
