I've been meaning to do an exhaustive test of our DOM in order to document any

These conversions (and APIs!) are carryovers from our classic behavior--I don't
have any data on what the web compatibility story might be like for these.
Considering that old versions of IE are probably the biggest consumer of these
APIs from a compatibility standpoint, I think the safest approach for web
