Description Chris Dumez 2015-09-01 16:15:33 PDT
Range API should throw a TypeError for null Node parameters. We currently throw a NotFoundError.

As per the DOM specification, the Node arguments are not optional nor nullable [1]:

Therefore, as per the Web IDL specification, we should throw a TypeError if the Node parameter is null or missing:
