Where is it specified?  Otherwise that statement is self referential.

However the key points I was making is that it is manipulation of objects
representing the browser, rather than manipulating the document, that
are implicated when pages produce blank screens or dead links, and that,
because they don't manipulate the document, they have been considered
out of scope for W3C standardisation.

(That doesn't stop them being used for document type resources, making
those resources unavailable in secure environments.  In fact, my
impression is that sites that break through a scripting requirement 
break in the document-like parts (navigation).)
