After a recent discussion on the jQuery mailing list where someone wondered if “jQuery was OpenAjax compliant” I decided to fully investigate the OpenAjax Alliance.
* Keeping the global namespace clean.
* Making sure libraries don’t overwrite each others window.onload events.
* Keeping the global XML namespaces clean.
* Keep any attempts to walk to the DOM from breaking.
This is good. Those are simple tasks that many libraries can easily get behind.
