LC-2602 Dominique Hazael-Massieux <dom@w3.org> (archived comment)
Hi,

The LC WD of the vibration API uses exceptions for cases where the
requested vibration is too long.
http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-vibration-20120202/

But WebIDL has removed support for raising exceptions in its syntax.

In prose, an exception of a particular type can be thrown by
using wording like the following:

Throw a DOMException of type HierarchyRequestError with
message “Cannot append that Node here”.
http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/WebIDL/#idl-exceptions

Also, there should be a normative reference to WebIDL.

Added text: "the user agent MAY throw a NotSupportedError exception [DOM4]"

and

"added a normative reference by adding the usual Web IDL boilerplate to the Conformance section" http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-device-apis/2012Feb/0022.html
yes
