I have filed a bug for this, 3 moths ago: 
https://github.com/darobin/respec/issues/157


Citing myself from that bug: ”There are 5 instances of document.write 
in http://darobin.github.com/respec/builds/respec-w3c-common.js”


There first one is: 

	i.document.write(t), i.document.close(), i.document.form.submit()
