After checking twice I discovered that you probably meant (again it may
depend for each IDL to C++ mapping.
Sorry, I was checking for getimplementation but it is more "Implementation"
which is mapped on several IDL to C++ as "get_Implementation()".
So you are right David, DOM level 1 got the capability for level or feature
support probing. However, everything that I said about the impedance
mismatch in the case of early binding about the Mozilla XPCOM, the WINE and
Microsoft DCOM, remains true. Because the node interface changed, the C++
client will simply get a system error also more commonly called an
application crash. So, the solution to have a non-changing interface to
probe the provider capabilities remains, or that W3C declare that XPCOM and
DCOM are heretics that only deserved to be excommunicated from the Web dev
