Description Cameron McCormack 2012-09-28 01:35:46 UTC
The Media Source Extensions spec is already assuming it can do this:

interface MediaSource {
  enum State { "closed", "open", "ended" };
  readonly attribute State readyState;

The question then is whether you should be allowed to refer to MediaSource::State from some other interface.
Comment 1 Anne 2012-11-29 14:51:47 UTC
What is the use case though? Enums can just as well be put in the global scope, they're not exposed anyway.
Comment 2 Cameron McCormack 2012-12-07 05:03:57 UTC
True that.  And it looks like they have moved the enum out of the interface now.
