Elements is an ES6-style subclass of Array with two additional methods. It's
the new NodeList / HTMLCollection. 

How can a class named "Elements" legitimately replace the NodeList interface,
when, in additions to Elements, a NodeList can also contain Text nodes and
Comments etc?

There are comments throughout the spec about "historical artifacts" that "we
cannot rid the web of" and yet this seems like another one in the making...
