We thought it was important for setImmediate to be semantically identical to setTimeout and started from that spec. Including setTimeout by reference would be much easier. I'm not sure the best approach here. We'll take that as an action item.

Subject: Sharing spec text between setImmediate and setTimeout

The specification for setImmediate is more or less a copy/paste of the one for setTimeout, as far as I can tell.  Can we somehow point to that by reference instead of duplicating it?  Otherwise whatever issues come up (e.g. http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=13095) have to be fixed in both places....
