           Summary: Define what "this" value to use for
                    setTimeout(function)

The "get the timed task" algorithm currently says:

  1. If the first argument to the invoked method is an object that has an
  internal [[Call]] method, then return a task that checks if the entry for
  handle in list has been cleared, and if it has not, calls the aforementioned
  [[Call]] method with as its arguments the third and subsequent arguments to
the
  invoked method (if any), and abort these steps.

This doesn't say what to use as the "this" value.
