TWI [1] does not define "the origin of a widget instance". Nor does HTML5.
It is also confusing to say that HTML5 defines the 'concept of origin',
given that it normatively refers to The Web Origin Concept [2]. TWI needs
to be more specific about what aspect of Origin is being referenced and
where that specific aspect is defined.
