DOM 1.0 is a REC, and the beast must be fed.  As our published RD
mentions, we're aiming for DOM 1.0 compatibility, but the Infoset will
at least be able to distinguish what is required from what is optional
(the DOM has been deliberately silent on that point, keeping the faith
that some day there would be an Infoset).

All the best,
