Description Ben Turner 2011-10-17 23:06:54 UTC
Right now the first sentence of the description says to throw an exception if the argument is not a valid key or KeyRange ignoring the fact that the argument is optional. We may also want to accept null to mean 'everything'.

Making change
Comment 2 Eliot Graff 2011-11-02 15:09:24 UTC
I changed the wording just a little bit to overtly state that the param is optional:

If the optional key parameter is not a valid key or a key range, this method throws a DOMException of type DataError.

The change is published in the 1 November Editor's Draft.
Thanks for the feedback.
