because determining whether an implementation is compliant or not means knowing
what interfaces are mandatory or not; as defined, it is ambiguous what is
mandatory in an HTML5 UA; are these three interfaces mandatory or not?
including Document as mandatory would seem to imply they are, but then they are
not listed in 2.2.2 which makes one question the former
