I assumed :/ that HTML would do the marking. Let's consider this a bug.

It's not entirely clear to me what the suggestion from Ryosuke is. Is
it to keep getters on HTMLDocument only and expose HTMLDocument only
in browsing contexts created from text/html resources? And use
Document everywhere else and have Document contain all the other
members including (former) SVGDocument members? That setup would make
sense to me anyway.
