Having this be read-only means that there's no portable way
to use this "dom iterator" facility, since there's no way to
feed initial the DOM node to it!!

A simple fix:  it's readonly inside a parse() invocation, and
is writable otherwise.

Not fixing this means that such iterators must be nonportable;
which should IMHO be an anti-goal.
