Definitely will. As Ryosuke pointed out, the latest patch (
webkit.org/b/75054) will consolidate most of the logic in a few methods
which could be easily moved from NamedNodeMap into Element if need be. In
putting together this set of patches, it's been very clear that there's not
a clean separation between Element and NamedNodeMap anyway, so it's good to
have the suggestion that the code should all live in Element (since
splitting it is just confusing).

Probably won't get into any more of this before holiday, but I'll give the
bugs you filed a look and plan to do some more cleanup in the new year.
