ISSUE-76: Document pointer needs fixing

Document pointer needs fixing

HISTORICAL: XHR [bugs and issues are tracked via Bugzilla]
Raised by:
Anne van Kesteren
Opened on:
In the following scenarios it's not clear what should happen to the Document pointer:

var randomObj = {};
randomObj.XMLHttpRequest = someWindow.XMLHttpRequest;
new randomObj.XMLHttpRequest();


window.foreignXHR = otherWindow.XMLHttpRequest
new foreignXHR();

Needs testing in Internet Explorer since we followed that for the definition of Document pointer so far. (Thanks to Sam and Maciej.)
