HTMLDocument, or Document?

If it's put on HTMLDocument exclusively, that would solve the 
XMLDocument.prototype problem as well.  But the readyState property 
seems to be on Document, not HTMLDocument....

In general, I have no objection to the change proposed above; just want 
to clarify where exactly we want to put the inline event handler property.

Well, yes, but in general there is only one kind of event normally 
dispatched for a given name.  But OK, we can wait and see on this.
