[Greasemonkey] decision time: compatibility or anonymity?

My two cents:
I think the enhanced security is great. It's worth a bit of
disorientation as scripts are updated. But with the near-universal
reference of the document object, I might suggest that this one and
only one object is referenced into the new scope. Really, what script
doesn't do a document.evaluate or a document.getElement(s)BySomething?
Probably a clearly noted backwards-compatibility-only
this-is-deprecated-and-will-be-removed-in-a-future-version sort of
measure. I think that this one object alone will maintain
compatibility with a lot of scripts that can then be updated more
That is, as long as that is still secure.
