 sorry, but you've completely lost me.

 i thought we were discussing the definition of the webkit-specific API.

 please correct me if i'm wrong, but it sounds like you're saying that the
webkit API is set in stone, and that anyone wishing to make use of webkit must
live with that, even if it doesn't do what's actually needed.

 ... but i doubt very much that that's what you're saying.

 please could you clarify?
