I'm wondering whether this should actually be a spec. bug at all.  Isn't this bug better logged in Bugzilla for the Mozilla project?  Unless you think this behavior is specified incorrectly?
Comment 2 Ms2ger 2013-04-05 07:21:32 UTC
I haven't investigated what other implementations do; if Gecko is alone, I expect we'd be happy to change.
Comment 3 Arun 2013-04-05 18:22:32 UTC
+ sicking

I think Gecko's behavior is wrong, unless sicking thinks the spec. is wrong.
Comment 4 Arun 2013-08-19 21:42:29 UTC
I filed which shows that there was a bug in Firefox to *explicitly* throw.  But this behavior is not shared by Chrome and Safari.  I'm think Fx has a bug here.
Comment 5 Arun 2013-08-20 15:57:08 UTC
Marking this as INVALID.  The bug is a Gecko bug.  The above bug report carries the history of it.  I believe a patch needs to be backed out.
