I'm not sure I understand:
- a single WebWorker always runs in only one thread, even though there may
be multiple WebWorkers running on the same thread, right?
- it should be possible to give each WebWorker its own DOM instance, like
various webpages running in one process have their own DOM instance as well,
- Assuming that the DOM instances aren't shared between the WebWorkers or
with the web pages, there can be no re-entrancy issues, right?
I must be missing something... :)
