missing definition of Transferable
Last modified: 2012-12-07 22:58:54 UTC
the type 'Transferable' is referred to in the definitions of DedicatedWorkerGlobalScope (4.2.2) and Worker (4.8.2); however, no definition or reference to a definition of this type is provided
Sigh, more reasons I hate publishing this stuff in its split-up form at the W3C. I really strongly recommend using the full spec where these problems don't come up: http://whatwg.org/c
I'll add a reference.
There's already a reference to the HTML spec. It's assumed that the reader is familiar with the basic types defined in that spec.
I would like to see an either a link from the use of Transferable to the definition in HTML5 or an explicit mention of Transferable as a dependent type defined in HTML5.
In particular, under 2.1 Dependencies, there is the text:
"HTML Many fundamental concepts from HTML are used by this specification. [HTML]"
I wish to make certain that every normatively fundamental concept (including types) that are defined in HTML5 and used by this specification are either explicitly linked or are enumerated under 2.1 Dependencies. I would suggest that linking would be preferable to enumerating.
