It seems you misunderstand the term cookie-free Document object. It's
a specific kind of Document object, used by XMLHttpRequest (and maybe
ought to be used for DOMParser and such too).

I believe from testing the behavior for XMLHttpRequest is different in
browsers from throwing, although I would prefer if they were
consistent there.
