Neither does Gecko.

However note that Gecko has an HTMLDocument interface, which some things 
that HTML5 puts on Document actually live on at the moment (more along 
the lines of how DOM Core vs DOM HTML used to work).

SVGDocument in Gecko directly inherits from Document, if that's what you 
mean.

Note that in Gecko "activeElement" is on Document, not on HTMLDocument. 
  And we're generally planning to move more things from HTMLDocument to 
Document; we just haven't had a chance to do that yet.

XMLDocument has nothing to do with SVGDocument in Gecko.  XMLDocument is 
what you get from things like XHR responseXML.
