I understand your point, but the spec is a guide to the implementers,
rather than developers, and any information there that doesn't help the
implementer is extra weight. The current code examples serve the purpose of
understanding how the API should work and are therefore simple. We'll need
to have more complex code examples, but they should be in a developer
documentation, such as html5rocks or MDN, where you can present the
developer with much more context and informal material. :)

Cheers,
