What "script context" should nodes belong to if they are adopted from
one document to another?  By script context I mean which set of
prototype objects are used.  This doesn't seem to be mentioned in the
DOM 3 core adoptNode description.

I would expect the automatic adopting of nodes that browsers seem to be
doing (rather than throwing WRONG_DOCUMENT_ERR) would have the same
behaviour as using the adoptNode API.

On a related note which script context should be used if the
Document.create* APIs are used on different documents (e.g.
doc1.createTextNode.call(doc2, ...))?

I've uploaded a test case to http://ado.is-a-geek.net/www-dom/context/,
results don't seem to be consistent between different browsers.

Thanks
