I can modify the spec to require that, I just need to figure out the 
best way to write it.  But then I don't think there is anything special 
an implementation would need to do to deal with the a misbehaving 
resolver  (beyond what the spec already requires for unexpected return 
values and exceptions thrown by it), since any modifications performed 
by the resolver would occur before searching the DOM.
