ElementTraversal interface was defining methods allowing to access from one
Node to another one in the document tree.
It proves useless as very few type of
Node were able to implement all its methods and properties. It has been split into two interfaces,
ParentNode containing the useful methods and properties for each kind of nodes.
As it was a pure interface, with no object of this type, this change has no effect on the Web.
The definition of 'ChildNode' in that specification.
