As far as I can tell the spec is unambiguous about this. The event is called
'connect', it's of type "MessageEvent", does not bubble, is not cancelable, has
no default action, has a data attribute whose value is the empty string and has
a ports attribute whose value is an array containing only the newly created
port, and is fired asynchronously:

http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/complete/workers.html#shared-workers-and-the-sharedworker-interface

The MessageEvent interface additionally says that "Except where otherwise
specified, when the user agent creates and dispatches a message event in the
algorithms described in the following sections, the lastEventId attribute must
be the empty string, the origin attribute must be the empty string, the source
attribute must be null, and the ports attribute must be null":

http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/complete/comms.html#messageevent

It looks like WebKit and Opera both have bugs; they should set 'data' to the
empty string.

Please reopen this bug if I'm wrong. Thanks!
