ddorwin has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/encrypted-media:

== The WebIDL reference points to the first edition ==
https://w3c.github.io/encrypted-media/#bib-WebIDL refers to the [2012 
version](http://www.w3.org/TR/WebIDL/), the first edition. This is may
 actually be fine for some uses instances of "[WebIDL]". However, 
others appear after links to the [second 
edition](https://heycam.github.io/webidl/) and a lot of the Web IDL in
 the spec relies on features only in the second edition. In 
particular, Promises and `MediaKeyStatusMap`.

There is a previous and still unresolved discussion beginning at 
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=26573#c5. Regardless of
 the process issues, we should make our reference correct, and that is
 what this issue tracks.

Related question: Should our Web IDL somehow include a normative 
reference to the second edition of "[WebIDL]" or is it sufficient to 
have a normative reference somewhere in the doc.
