solution for or a path to a consensus with the Working Group. If such a

Your comment on the document as a whole:
> Hi,
> 
> The Contacts API currently defines it find() method as special caller
> method; I'm not sure why it is so, but that's not compatible with Web
> IDL: the find() method has optional arguments, and Web IDL forbids
> special operations with optional arguments.
> 
> The Calendar API has the same issue.
