--- Comment #13 from Tim Down <timdown@gmail.com> ---
I'm in favour of getting rid of detach() because its existence is confusing,
but I still have some residual confusion. I had assumed that the reason for
detach()'s existence was because a range needs to observe the DOM in order to
update itself when the DOM changes, which must have some performance
implication. Was I mistaken? If not, is the process of detaching a range now
handled when the range is garbage collected?
