WebIDL says: [1]

In this case, /Throw/ is false. (It is true if and only if the script is 
in strict mode.)

I've made that part optional.

I can make them use iframe.contentDocument instead, if that helps you. I 
do think we should keep those tests, though. Regardless of spec 
organization, this is code that does need to be tested, and we can't 
really rely on the same code being hit with Documents created using, 
e.g., DOMImplementation.createDocument.

Looks like it was, indeed. I removed the test.

I've removed these checks.
