birtles has just created a new issue for https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [scroll-animations-1] Something is odd with the handling of `source` in the ScrollTimeline constructor ==
The [`ScrollTimeline` constructor](https://drafts.csswg.org/scroll-animations-1/#dom-scrolltimeline-scrolltimeline) text has the following:

> Creates a new ScrollTimeline object using the following procedure:
> 1. Let timeline be a new ScrollTimeline object.
> 1. Let source be the result corresponding to the first matching condition from below.
>     **If the source value of options is non-null,**
>     * Let source be source
>     **Otherwise (source is null):**
>     * Let source be the scrollingElement of the Document associated with the Window that is the current global object.
>     Note: source may still be null after this step, e.g. if the Document has no scrollingElement.
> 1. Set the source of timeline to source.

Which is odd because `source` is not nullable in the `ScrollTimeline` spec. So how can we assign `source` if it is not null?

Also, "Let source be source" is odd. Clearly it means the `source` member of `options` but it needs to say that.
