--- Comment #3 from Boris Zbarsky <bzbarsky@mit.edu> ---
Using prose is actually a terrible solution for this in practice.  When
implementing a canvas method right now, you have to end up looking at three
completely different places (the IDL, the prose for the method, and a second
prose location that's in a totally different place and says that all methods
that don't say otherwise have a certain behavior) to figure out what the
behavior should be.  And when speccing a canvas method you have to be aware of
this bit of action-at-a-distance prose....
