Netscape/Mozilla actually supports a fair chunk of the specs mentioned, 
but not completely which is why it reports not supported. Here are 
the/some reasons why Netscape does not return true for these:

Ken Sall:
 >NS supports DOM Level 2 except for 3 areas:
 >- UIEvents: basic user interface events

Missing the activation event.

 >- MutationEvents: events for mutations in a DOM tree

Probable missing things:

a.  The event that fires on all subnodes whenever a hierarchy enters or 
leaves the document.
b.  Perhaps missing subtree modified events, and stuff caused by that.

 >- Traversal: Alternative traversal methods of a DOM tree

TreeWalker implemented, but not the NodeIterator.

There are probably bugs logged on all of these issues in mozilla.org's 
Bugzilla if you are interested.
