I am not sure how this applies as the proposal is only to make the API more
user-friendly by allowing automatic conversions (think of the "" +
construct) to occur natively in the API solely as a utility, not as a
functionality extension.  The changes are very basic and easily understood.
The proposal excluded the getAttribute() etc... methods, since they would
require more substantial changes.

Any other conversions are up to the user, and as already mentioned in a
reply to Patrick Dowler, handling formatting issues like localization would
be handled in the way they are now: application specific code.
