Yes, for innerHTML this makes sense; however, I wonder if we're taking this too
far. I'd prefer to leave this as an implementation detail--even for innerHTML
you can imagine an implementation that "pre-computes" the result before a call
and then returns it--invalidating it on every tree mutation. It's probably a
bad implementation design, but illustrates that it is an implementation detail.
I don't see why you would annotate the exclusion of this possibility from the
spec's standpoint.
