Vibration cancellation - The spec is very explicit about what should
cancel a vibrate. Which is either navigator.vibrate(0) or
navigator.vibrate([]). So what should navigator.vibrate([0]) do? In
Cordova land we also treat navigator.vibrate([0]) as a cancellation.
Proposed resolution, accepted on teleconference 7 August 2014: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-device-apis/2014Aug/0000.html

Change section 4 (Vibration Interface) Step 9.2 [1]

from "If pattern is an empty list, or if the device is unable to vibrate, then return true and terminate these steps.“


"If pattern is an empty list, a list containing a single vibration entity with max duration of 0, or if the device is unable to vibrate, then return true and terminate these steps.“

I would categorize this change as editorial, since having a max duration of 0 could be interpreted as the ‘device is unable to vibrate”, however I think a clarification could be helpful and be incorporated as part of the process of creating a CR publication draft.
