I recall we had an issue about that. Ah, yes:
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=17323

The bug is currently closed, my bad as I thought we'd fixed all the IDL-related issues with your recent set of changes. Feel free to reopen it.

As for you question, if indeed enums are more expressive and closer to our spec in prose, I see no reason to not use them.

Thanks,
Olivier
