           Summary: inconsistent treatment of transitive dependencies -
                    typed arrays

In Section 2.2.2 Dependencies [1] there appears:

Typed Arrays

The ArrayBuffer interface and underlying concepts from the Typed Array
Specification are used for several features in this specification. The
Uint8ClampedArray interface type is specifically used in the definition of the
canvas element's 2D API. [TYPEDARRAY]

However, the canvas element's 2D API is not specified in the HTML5
specification, and, as a consequence, no normative use of [TYPEDARRAY] applies
in the spec.

Given that the editor has previously declined to list 2nd or Nth order
dependencies, e.g., see bug 14213 comment 3 [2]), this dependency for
[TYPEDARRAY] should be removed. Furthermore, it should be removed from the
References section [3], since no other reference is made to [TYPEDARRAY] in the
