- Third, NodeLists being live means you cannot manually manipulate
them. StaticNodeLists don't have this problem. Since they are not
live, manipulation of them should not be a problem. This means array
functionality such as sort, push, pop that would simply not make sense
on a NodeList would make perfect sense on a StaticNodeList.
I don't want us to define a new array when ECMAScript has a perfectly
good one. That is just a lot more work for everyone involved.
What we could maybe do though is to return a real ECMAScript array. I
actually like this idea a lot since that'll integrate much better with
scripts than a StaticNodeList would.
That makes a lot of sense. I support this.
