When HTMLCollection methods which take a string as an argument have multiple
matches, most implementations return an array-like object.  Although this can
only happen with a nonconforming DOM, the spec should reflect this.

Implementations are mixed between NodeList and HTMLCollection, but all tested
browsers return an array of some kind (with a couple strange exceptions) except
for Firefox, which always returns a single item.

(To be clear, no change should be made for when a single result is returned.)
