Fair enough, here are the requirements for the name:

* short * simple

Why are these requirements for the name, no other DOM names are short and simple, they're clear and unambiguous, I'd say they were the requirements. If people want to use shorter names they understand in their closed world the $x() approach is perfectly simple for them (although discouraged by ECMA of course).

This has been noted as an open issue.

The reason is performance.

Then one 1 method with an optional limit is ,uch better, it optimises for all situations when the author knows how many they're interested in, rather than 1 special case. I don't see why the 1 case is that much more special than the N case - as I say gEBI meets most of the 1 cases.

The 1 case returns a Node as opposed to a StaticNodeList.
