Given that location.origin is defined by http://url.spec.whatwg.org/
once the dust of integrating URL into HTML settles, having
URLUtils.origin reflect the Document's origin when URLUtils is
implemented by Location would be very weird.

If you want the origin of a Document we could introduce
Document.origin I suppose.
