Now that the "relevant namespace object" term has gone from Web IDL (since
modules have been removed) some text around here needs to be rewritten. You
probably want to refer to you don't need to mention the ECMAScript global
object specifically, but instead you might want to refer to Web IDL's
#dfn-expose, which can be used to control which interfaces are exposed in a
particular ECMAScript global environment. Just say "ECMAScript global
environments for dedicated workers must not _expose_ the
SharedWorkerGlobalScope interface." and vice versa. I think that should be

Silvia - I don't see a new checkin in the Workers spec's CVS repository <http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/html5/workers/Overview.html>. 

Was this bug fixed in some previous revision?
Comment 3 Silvia Pfeiffer 2012-09-14 12:37:23 UTC
Oops, I'm sorry I got this mixed up as a bug of the HTML spec. Instead, it's
part of the WebAppsWG. It has been applied by Ian in
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=15158 , so you might want to
check if that text has been pulled into the W3C spec.

Sorry for the confusion (again).

I checked the CVS log and this bug was fixed in r1.338 (9-Aug-2012) <http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/html5/workers/Overview.html.diff?r1=1.337;r2=1.338;f=h> (aka r/7226) so I'm changing it back to fixed.
