Your comment on 3. Vibration Interface Navigator implements Vibration;
> Hi,
> The LC WD of the vibration API uses exceptions for cases where the
> requested vibration is too long.
> http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-vibration-20120202/
> But WebIDL has removed support for raising exceptions in its syntax.
>         In prose, an exception of a particular type can be thrown by

>             Throw a DOMException of type HierarchyRequestError with
>         message “Cannot append that Node here”.

> Also, there should be a normative reference to WebIDL.

Working Group Resolution (LC-2602):
ReSpec update:
