A cleaner solution seems to be to move the necessary methods and attributes to DOM and let all XML languages use it. MathML would be another candidate where it could make sense.

This is already the case, it just happens to be that HTML defines some
of these members for now. Moving things between specifications is what
we've been doing to some extent, e.g. for compatMode, characterSet,
contentType, but it's not entirely clear what the benefit is while the
cost is somewhat significant.
