It's available in workers.

"... except for the following:
... Constructors defined by specifications that explicitly say that they
should be visible when the script's global object is a
DedicatedWorkerGlobalScope, a SharedWorkerGlobalScope, or an object
implementing the WorkerUtils interface"

and http://dev.w3.org/html5/eventsource says:

"This constructor must be visible when the script's global object is either
a Window object or an object implementing the WorkerUtils interface."

This is just a random sample of interfaces, not an exhaustive list.

Always click the "latest editor's draft" link at the top to get to the
version that everyone is actually using.  "TR" links are invariably out of
date and incorrect.
