The thread is discontinuous in the archives (why?), but I think the
relevant part was:
It's possible to switch these relevant checks to walk the
ownerDocument chain instead, say. Then we need to audit all the
callsites to make sure this makes sense at them and figure out what
to do for the ones where it doesn't. (For example, should
window.alert on the window of an iframe not in the DOM put up a
dialog in a tab based on the ownerDocument of the iframe? Or not put
one up at all?) There are quite a few APIs that need to be thus
audited if this invariant is changed.
