I replaced `IDL` with `<abbr title="Interface Definition  
Language">IDL</abbr>` in the source code.

Please see http://www.w3.org/2006/webapi/track/issues/44 for a discussion  
on that. You're welcome to contribute. I think we currently thought of the  
following solutions:

(1) Use OMG IDL and modify the draft for a bit.
     (This might be not possible, forgot the details.)
(2) Write up our own ODL specification and publish it
     as a note.
(3) Assume people will understand it and put all the
     useful stuff in the language bindings.
