I don't know of a reason it's needed for collections other than  
document.all. But it also doesn't seem harmful and I can't say  
definitively whether it helps anything. I wouldn't object to removing  
it from the spec, but we probably wouldn't remove it from WebKit short  
of evidence that it's actually harmful.

Perhaps Opera people can shed more light on the matter.
