[whatwg] [fullscreen] cancelFullScreen()

Is cancelFullScreen() synchronous or should it queue a task? If you invoke  
cancelFullScreen() on a Document of a parent or child browsing context  
 from the browsing context in whose Document requestFullScreen() was  
invoked it should presumably still work, no?

Presumably also if the Document has been navigated away from. In what  
scenarios does the "for example the UA might require that only a Document  
that last triggered full-screen can cancel it" provision apply?

It is really quite confusing in the draft what "full screen" is associated  
with. A Document, a top-level browsing context, the user agent?
