It's already supported for SVG at the moment. HTML simply extends the
Document interface and does not create one specific for HTML. In terms
of dependencies, HTML and DOM have a mutual dependency already (as
unfortunate as that may be). And actually, SVG must have a dependency
on HTML too for script scheduling and execution.
