The concern I have with doing that is that document created through 
other means, such as .implementation.createDocument, 
XSLTProccessor.transformToDocument, DOMParser.parse, etc, probably 
should not be in the 'uninitialized' state. Especially the last two 
should return documents that is in the 'complete' state I would think.
