That looks like a fixed version of the test.  This is the change I had to
make:

Index: HTMLFrameElement09.xml

I thought it was raised as an erratum for DOM Level 2 Core specification.  I
had no idea that there was an independent version of the DOM core
specification being developed, although it looks to be in the very early
stages.  I'm rather alarmed at its statement that it's going to "redefine
some things" from the standard DOM core.
