I am concerned that this change can break existing content.

We've had selection.modify for many years, and now we're going to make it start
throwing exceptions for cases where previously it would silently do nothing.
That's exactly the sort of change that results in broken websites.

Since selection.modify is WebKit-specific, I believe this would be in
WebKit-specific code paths on websites, so sites that were specifically
catering to Safari or Chrome or one of the other WebKit-based browsers.
