That is debatable. Some implementations may provide them as
extensions.  It is just like different degrees of conformance: "*If*
you provide accessor functions, do it that way."

However, if the 4DOM authors would rather remove them than keep them
(for whatever reason), and if nobody stands up and says "I need them",
I won't push them further.

I'd just hate to bring them back once removed.
