Ah, but note that DOML2 does not mandate a DocumentTraversal class but a =

Document interface (and others). This is perfectly legal DOM and quite c=

We treat DOML2 incompatabilities as bugs. There are a few minor compatab=
bugs here and there. For instance we use Python's string which is not re=
conformant to the DOMString interface because it does not have clean unic=
manipulation. This should hopefully be addressed when we mobe to Python =
We're happy to know of any other bugs.
