Hi, would it make sense to add the [Clamp] attribute to the argument of the vibrate method? This would be added in WebIDL.

See the Clamp attribute here:
http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/WebIDL/#Clamp

Without it, navigator.vibrate(-1) becomes navigator.vibrate(4294967295).

It seems clamping it to 0 would be a more elegant way of handling this bad input.

[fjh]: defer until decision made for WebIDL spec regarding support for this, still not supported

Note that there is some concern that [Clamp] cannot be applied to the contents of a sequence:
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=23623

It seems even the desired syntax is not fully agreed.

thus defer until WebIDL spec has been updated with agreed support for [Clamp]
