Right. I originally started the discussion on whatwg but trying to be
chartered by the editing community group. However, I haven't gotten any
formal response from Aryeh with that regard. Nonetheless, the intended
place for feedback is public-webapps.

DOMTransaction are optional. Do you know how one might specify a methods on
a callback interface to be optional?
