In the Bridge and in other places, we are using XXXConstants interfaces 
has helpers for classes which  need to use a common set 
of constants. This is not providing functionality as such, but it
helps sharing the constants and simplifying the code. When 
the constants are not used (e.g., SVGClipPathElementBridge does not
use any ERR_XXX constant) by a class, there is no real point in having 
it implement the XXXConstants interface. It would not hurt much to have
it though, but it is not necessary and it is not adding functionality.

Please do if you feel they are not right. It would be great if you 
could group your comments and enter them into Bugzilla as one bug.
