It's better, though it ignores what happens with a null contextDoc and adoptNode 
followed by insertion into some other document...  Probably good enough to get 
the intent across, at least.

What does importNode have to do with this?  Or do you refer to the operation 
that's "not importNode but acts like it"?  The way things are phrased right now 
sounds like these exceptions need not be thrown if there's no actual importNode 
involved; is that the desired effect?
