Description Boris Zbarsky 2012-07-27 01:46:20 UTC
In http://dev.w3.org/2006/webapi/WebIDL/#idl-dictionaries there's this text:

  A dictionary MUST NOT be declared such that its inheritance hierarchy has a
  cycle. That is, an interface A cannot inherit from itself, nor can it inherit
  from another interface B that inherits from A, and so on. 

That needs some s/interface/dictionary/
