I wasn't asking that the references to SharedWorkerGlobalScope be removed. What
I was asking for was to provide a link to where the item is defined, which you
did, but also to provide enough of a description/definition to go with the
link, so that people understand what this thing is.

A link to another specification is only useful if people understand why this
link is given, and what they can expect to find at the other end. 

I have other things going on at the moment, but will attempt to provide
suggested text, when I post some other change proposals. In the meantime, I'll
just leave this bug in its current state. I don't think it needs to be upscaled
to an issue, not until I take a shot at providing alternative text. WHen I do
provide suggested text, I'll re-open this bug. 

If the alternative text is rejected then yeah, we'll need to upscale this bug
at the time.
