I guess we could explicitly mention it somewhere. On the other hand,  
everything has references and back-references and so far it seems to work  
fine for implementors (e.g. the new Event() feature is being picked up by  
implementors and so far the only question I got about it was about Web IDL  
dictionaries).

Overall though I think it is somewhat distracting to put a 40 page  
specification in contrast with a 1000 page specification. This  
specification is very small and you can easily read/scan/search it through.
