How many sites are we talking about here? From what I can tell, the site  
referenced in the bug report has been fixed. With no other known sites  
being affected, I suggest we keep the spec as is for now.

I tried searching http://webdevdata.org/ data-dec2012.zip for  
".createLSParser(", no results, and ".hasFeature(" only had "XPath" and  
two SVG features. Although the data set is limited, of course, so it  
doesn't tell us much.
