My thought was that if you had a tab open and restarted the browser,
that the state objects would be there after the restart, so we'd have
to serialize to disk.  I also thought that we'd persist this state
data even after we take a Document out of memory.

It might be possible to store some subset of DOM objects while still
meeting those requirements, but that seems like it might be a serious
can of worms.  Do you have a use case which would be facilitated by
being able to store some DOM objects in this way?
