Someone handed me https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/issues/695
today. It seems the rationale for this is shadow trees, where there is
no parent element at the top (just a DocumentFragment). I guess the
reason it's being noticed and implemented now (Gecko is close to
shipping) is because of shadow trees only starting to ship nowish.
