Dropped "this context". Had similar concerns.

Anne - thanks for the great feedback, I assume we're done now? I'm hoping these changes helped improve the reusability of the feature in other parts of the platform.

Frederick - I've kept the ED and the PR draft in sync.

Michael noted this might be limited to dedicated workers.

Michael, All - if you are prototyping vibrate() in workers, please let us know how it goes so we can consider it for a future release of the spec.
