Ok, so my conclusion is, all the right bits are in the spec, they are a bit
dispersed. What would be really nice is if the spec could algorithmically and
systematically "implement" an object (it tries to do this already, but it's not
cohesive which gets really confusing). So ideally, parts of the spec could be
written more like: 

 1. Make the  Interface object. 
 2. check the Extended Attributes (and expose if needed in global scope), 
 3. add the default stuff (name and message)
 4. Then add the members.

etc. 

Again, please take a look at ECMAScript5... it's pretty idiot proof in the way
it's done (which means people like me can implement happily and rapidly). I'm
finding that as I read WebIDL I'm having to go to the browser and do blackbox
testing to understand stuff... I don't think I should have to be doing that (it
defeats the purpose of the spec).
