I don't see InvalidCharacterError being thrown in DOM4. 

I also tested the major browsers to see if any threw a similar error, of those
tested (Opera, IE, Chrome, Safari, Firefox), none of them threw this error (or
an error by its former name). I tried with random unicode characters, spaces,
null/"null" (which is still inconsistent between browsers), and embedded nulls.

Given these test results, I will be removing the criteria for this exception.

(I also don't see NotSupportedError being thrown from DOM4 either, though this
test appears to pass in all major browsers:
