It looks like these commands don't have the "Handle any user prompts" step
that so many others do:
https://w3c.github.io/webdriver/#take-screenshot
https://w3c.github.io/webdriver/#take-element-screenshot

I guess that means the spec things these endpoints should work even with
prompts open? That seems weird to me. What was the behavior you saw, did
the tests fail or did the dialog actually appear in the screenshot?
