Out of curiosity, are there recent data on setting document.domain?
It's been quite a long time I haven't crossed it, replaced by 
postMessage (most likely out of habit with cross-frame communication 
where that's the only thing available) but I'm biased.

IIRC the only valid reason to set document.domain is pre-postMessage 
cross-eTLD+1-frame communication.
How big is the intersection of websites both needing to support IE6/7 
and cross-eTLD+1-frame communcation?
