This is a partial interface.  That means that it adds things to the 
Document interface, for all documents.

The HTML5 spec should already define what these methods do in that 
environment, since it's putting them on all documents.  If it doesn't, 
that's a bug in the HTML5 spec.

That said, I agree that moving some of these into domcore may make 
sense.  The fact that Document is split between domcore and HTML5 this 
way is pretty silly.
