Well...  As things stand, I'm just not sure what that language means. 
In practice, in bindings that require that all arguments to a function 
be passed (e.g. everything in Mozilla) the function is simply impossible 
to call without passing in a type.  So this whole sentence becomes 
irrelevant, I think.

That is, I see no implication here that the function needs to be 
callable with some of the arguments left out.

If, on the other hand, the Working Group means "an empty string" when it 
uses "not specified" here, then this needs to be clarified.  As things 
stand, I'm not sure what the spec is really saying.
