Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: Wow, there's little interop on this. WebKit lets you set it to
anything, Firefox throws if you set it to a non-Window and ignores setting it
to a Window, IE lets you set it to anything but changes it's value to an Error
object...

Anyway I've made it a mutable non-replaceable attribute except that the only
value it can take is null, all other Window values are ignored and all other
values cause a TypeError in WebIDL. nulls neuter the browsing context so that
any Window objects in that browsing context, including past ones, will start
returning null instead.
