The link above currently lists an error in "interface
HTMLCollection" (sounds like your cat might have had a stab at editing
that IDL), which stops listing the detailed interfaces.

I assume that the problem you’re reporting was that
HTMLFormControlsCollection didn’t appear in the list of extracted IDLs.

If so, I think the code that displays the extracted interfaces is
somewhat buggy right now in the tool and might now correctly show them
all (even if it correctly extracts and checks them); if that’s correct,
I’ll look into fixing it once I get confirmation.
