            Bug ID: 24028
           Summary: Element.matches("!invalid!") should throw SyntaxError,
                    not TypeError

          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DOM

All tested *MatchesSelector() implementations throw a SyntaxError when parsing
fails, but the spec requires TypeError.

SyntaxError seems more reasonable here, so change the spec to match reality?
