What do you feel is needed beyond the current W3C DOM standard methods for querying the
levels and modules of support in a DOM implementation?
COM/DCOM is already anticipated to divide into separate interfaces for expansion, because
that is how that object model handles expansion. Different models/bindings have the
freedom to expand in the way most suitable to the binding. Don't expect every other
directly to the object -- even if it is just COM objects supplying the implementation
because an IDispatch approach is taken to supply a non-segmented interface if I
understand it correctly.
