It's convenient.

xhr.send(view); // shorthand
xhr.send(view.buffer.slice(view.byteOffset, 
view.byteOffset+view.byteLength)); // longhand.

Kenneth,

Can we get a voice from MS? They've been supporting typed arrays in IE10 
for awhile.
If we're going to have this method, I'd really like to see it in IE10.


Boris, How do we feature test for support of the shorthand method?
