I'm not really an expert in this area but it looks good to me.

One comment:

    (do I need to add JavaScriptCore bindings as well, in order to  
land implementation?)

In general, yes, implementations of HTML elements should come with  
JavaScriptCore bindings. Otherwise, any tests of the bindings that you  
added wouldn't pass for most WebKit ports, and that would make the  
buildbot sad.

In this case, though, I don't think the relevant elements have any  
element-specific DOM APIs, so nothing is really needed besides IDL  
files with empty interfaces that inherit from HTMLElement, plus adding  
the IDL files to the relevant build systems.
