http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#browsing-context says:
"Note: In general, there is a 1-to-1 mapping from the Window object to the
Document object. In one particular case, a Window can be reused for the
presentation of a second Document in the same browsing context, such that the
mapping is then 2-to-1. This occurs when a browsing context is navigated from
the initial about:blank Document to another, with replacement enabled."

There's at least one other case where the relationship isn't 1-to-1 and a
Document may have its Window changed:
