That's what I thought too, though a getter may just be for better 
syntax. A "getGlobal" method would be of bad taste in a post-ES5 world.

Really cool, thanks :-)

On a related note, I had misunderstood document.open on the www-dom 
thread, so what I suggested here can't be a solution, I think. However, 
I'm glad it caught your attention enough to think it's a valuable idea :-)
