           Summary: Cycles via dictionary members should probably be
                    prohibited
           Product: WebAppsWG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebIDL
        AssignedTo: cam@mcc.id.au
        ReportedBy: bzbarsky@mit.edu

Consider this IDL:

  dictionary Dict1 {
    Dict2 member;
  };
  dictionary Dict2 : Dict1 {
  };

or even simpler:

  dictionary Dict1 {
    Dict1 member;
  };

This should probably be disallowed, since there's no sane way to do it.
