$(document).text() always returns an empty string

I'm not sure if .text() is supposed to work on the document element, but the following code used to work on prior versions, but always returns an empty string with jQuery 1.7:

var textContent = $(document).text();

It's the new Sizzle.getText, it gets a jQuery collection array from jQuery.fn.text that is just the document element and falls into the wrong case. (A document is 9 btw).

Update Sizzle. Adds document to acceptable nodeTypes for .text(). Fixes #10724.
