FWIW there's also webidl.js: https://github.com/darobin/webidl.js. There is currently a stupid bug that prevents it from parsing some of the HTML5 WebIDL, and it needs a few tweaks to be up to speed with the present draft but other than that it works (for me, at least :). It's the IDL parser in ReSpec v2 and so far it's been correct. It returns a JS data structure that represents the AST and could be serialised.
