I think the Component designators are likely to be useful at some point;
I'm not yet convinced about the action sheets value, since it's not
obvious that editing/annotating the WebIDL as such will be useful in
practice — in other words, I can see usefulness in being able to
annotate a given WebIDL out of band, but whether these annotations
necessarily need to be bound to a WebIDL modification is not clear to
me.

Thanks for exploring that space, in any case!
