I believe there are other places in the DOM API where we distinguish
between null and empty string." How are those being handled in the
ECMAScript bindings?

(From what you've said, I can see an argument for saying that "unspecified"
_is_ ECMAScript's null value... but it probably ought to be exposed as an
independent mnemonic, since you'll sometimes want null for parameters
before the last.)
