Consider aligning SVG*List interfaces with other arraylike types

State:
RAISED
Product:
SVG 2
Raised by:
Erik Dahlström
Opened on:
2010-05-07
Description:
The SVG*List interfaces in SVG 1.1 are a bit different from e.g NodeList, which uses ".length" instead of ".numberOfItems", and which allows array notation for accessing items in the list, "mylist[3]" instead of "mylist.item(3)" and "mylist.getItem(3)" (for all SVG*List except SVGElementInstanceList).

We should consider changing the IDL definitions to align with the NodeList / Array syntax in ecmascript.

Note: the SVGElementInstanceList is in line with the definition of NodeList, which also has the item() method. The other list types are all using getItem.
