[Bug 14879] You should remove named numeric constants from interfaces that don't have legacy constraints yet. These probably include some or all of: HTMLTrackElement, TextTrack, NavigatorUserMediaError, MediaStream, PeerConnection, EventSource.

Well, the same could be asked of pretty much any new interface, since usually
they're comparable to some existing interface or other.  I think it's probably
best to just avoid the numeric constant pattern in all new interfaces, but
maybe other people have different opinions.  Anne?

Probably not worth my time, since I don't know if they'll agree that it's a bad
pattern.

> EventSource: This one is widely implemented.

Okay.
