Steps to reproduce

W3C Recommendation on DOM Level 4 and WHATWG DOM Standard states that DocumentFragment can be used as constructor and return new DocumentFragment node.
Unfortunately Edge throws an error even on simple code which hurts interoperability with other browsers (Chrome, Firefox).

Problem code

var tree = new DocumentFragment();

Desired behavior: tree should be new DocumentFragment node

Current behavior: Edge shows error

Function expected
