It depends a bit on what you mean by "couldn't" document.write for 
example isn't allowed in xhtml (and hence not allowed in polyglot).
probably most (all?) uses of document.write could be rewritten to use 
alternative DOM scripting methods that are allowed, but any kind of 
automatic translation would be difficult as far as I can see.
