Why? What would be the purpose of passing in either one of those? In both cases it would just reduce the jQuery object to nothing but what you passed in - effectively making it the same as $(element || object).

An example:

headers = $("div.header");

// some client code passing in the selector
selector = ":eq(0)"
// works, because filter accepts strings

// same client code, but passes in an dom element
selector = document;
// doesn't work
// works
