Ok, thanks very much, I hadn't got around to doing this yet.

At the moment the file is just a stub but I think Tom's working in an  
SVG environment at the moment and he's working some on an SVG utility  
file which will sit in the same place as dom, html, etc. But yes, it  
should be promoted too :-)

The main thing we were trying to do is differentiate between utility  
functions and object definitions. Parse is an object rather than a  
set of functions so it can still live in Parse.js, where as the html,  
dom, math, date, ... js files do not define objects so they have been  
moved to reflect this.
