In order to avoid redefining the error handling defined in other  
specifications, REX defers to the underlying DOM that is being  
manipulated for such issues, as described in section 6.1. If the  
underlying DOM has undefined behaviour for such a case, it's not our  
job to fix it.

Hoping that this addresses your concern,
