you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest
title and text for the tracker issue; or you may create a tracker issue

Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: I added some informative text about this to the window.postMessage()
section. I didn't add anything to the MessagePort section since an attacker
couldn't get a MessagePort from another domain unless the other domain
explicitly sent one to the attacker. Let me know if you think I should add
anything else.
