I've seen naive programmer create an Element, and then attempt to
re-use it (across threads, or whatnot) and attach it to multiple
documents. With the exception, the problem became clear rather
quickly. Without an exception, using auto-reparenting, you'd
simply end up with documents that didn't contain the Element
you thought you'd added (and never explicitly removed).
