DOM ParentNode + ChildNode method extras: prepend, append (ParentNode) + before, after, and replaceWith (ChildNode)

The DOM standard provides a set of convenience methods for working with DOM Node trees: ParentNode.prepend(), ParentNode.append(), ChildNode.before(), ChildNode.after(), ChildNode.replaceWith(). Removal of the flag is anticipated in Chrome 54.
