Often code like this indicates misuse of DOM API functions for internal
purposes. This is inefficient (due to exception related checking and other
spec mandated behaviors) and architecturally bad (ties our internal data
structures to DOM way of presenting them, see stylesheet related classes).

I'm not sure it is a good idea to make these cases less visible.
