    This is an absolute necessity in order to implement the Delegation pattern as defined in iAD.js

    Do we even make claims to support DOM L-2 at this level? It seems like we only conform to the JS spec. Guess it requires R&D.

  3. Junaid Younus 2012-08-14 Don't think we still support this, I have changed it from a bug to a feature request, as that seems to be more appropriate.
