HTML currently has [OverrideBuiltins] partial interface Document { ... }, which
is invalid because you can't have extended attributes on a partial interface. 
But DOM4 can't add [OverrideBuiltins] to the actual Document interface
definition, because that defines no getter.

Suggested resolution: allow [OverrideBuiltins] on partial interfaces, and say
it has the same effect as if it was specified on the original interface.  So
the partial interface can add that extended attribute too, not just members.
