A Document can't be inserted anywhere.  Presumably you mean that script 
execution is deferred until the 'script' element is inserted into the contextDoc 
document?

I'm not sure what "defined" means here.  The real distinction is whether it's 
null or not, right?  Why not just say that?

Again, "not null" is probably better than "specified", since it can be specified 
to be null.

"imported"?  What does that mean?

Same here.  It looks like these exceptions were copied from the importNode 
definition in DOM 3 Core; the descriptions make no sense in this context, though.
