> Setting document.innerHTML calls the algorithm without a context element.

Implementors should note that document.innerHTML isn't descriptive of the Web
but an prescriptive addition that just looks a lot like it might be part of the
descriptive content of the spec.

FWIW, when there's no context, Gecko uses body in the HTML namespace as the
context. I'm assuming that this situation could arise with
Range::createContextualFragment somehow, but I'm not sure how exactly.
