Hi all,

For example:

> domLoading attribute
> 
> This attribute must return the time immediately before the user
> agent sets the current document readiness to "loading".

or in the Processing Model:

> Record the time as domLoading immediately before the user agent
> sets the current document readiness to "loading".

The "current document readiness" of what? I'm willing to accept that a
PerformanceTiming object has an implicit reference to the Window
through the Performance object from which it was retrieved (though
that should be clarified too), but even if there is a 1-to-1 mapping
from the Window object to the Document object in general, there are
exceptions.

This issue is present both in
<https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/webperf/raw-file/tip/specs/NavigationTiming/Over
view.html>
and <http://w3c.github.io/navigation-timing/>.

Looking forward to a clarification
Ms2ger
