The point of coding to accommodate *all* browsers and not just DOM compliant ones (by using recommendations set by the W3C) is that when new browsers are released, your pages will still work. If you decide to take advantage of new features in the new browsers, then your use of these features should degrade gracefully into browsers that don't support those features. Of course, this all assumes that browser manufacturers conform with W3C guidelines as well.
